Telecoms revenue in North America will grow between 2016 and 2021 (despite intensifying competition in the US mobile market), due to growth in fixed broadband spending driven by NGA roll-out. This report explains the drivers and assumptions behind the forecast trends.

"Growth in fixed broadband prices will mitigate the competition-induced decline in mobile revenue."

The fixed broadband market will be the major source of revenue growth in North America, as lack of competition and growing coverage of high-speed (up to gigabit) FTTH and cable networks allows operators to charge more for more-advanced services. However, mobile service revenue will decline due to growing competition in the USA, brought on by the competitive pricing and promotional strategies of T-Mobile.

THIS REPORT AND ASSOCIATED DATA ANNEX PROVIDE:

- a 5-year forecast of more than 170 mobile and fixed KPIs for North America, as a whole and 2 key countries
- an in-depth analysis of the trends, drivers and forecast assumptions for each type of mobile and fixed service, and for key countries
- an overview of operator strategies and country-specific topics, in order to highlight similarities and differences by means of a cross-country comparison
- a summary of results, key implications and recommendations for mobile and fixed operators.
