BMI View: The strong mobile market competition introduced by T-Mobile led to the cannibalisation of itscompetitors' customer bases, rather than contributing to further expansion in the number of basic phoneusers. Meanwhile, underlying market growth has come from connected devices, with the proliferation ofsmart homes and connected cars just the start of that particular market. In the wireline services sector,voice and TV continue to be under pressure, with the main growth driver being broadband and, especially,fibre broadband, underpinned by growing demand for heavy-data services. Regulatory decisions, such asthe FCC changing its broadband definition to start at 25Mbps and the development of the ConnectedAmerica Fund, will also drive broadband market growth, as operators look to offer higher speeds tocustomers.
