"Telecoms revenue in North America will stagnate during the forecast period at around USD400 billion annually due to a decline in the US mobile market."

We expect fixed operators across Canada and the USA to continue upselling faster broadband connections at higher prices, as well as taking advantage of uncompetitive markets. The Canadian mobile market will continue to grow due to the absence of a challenger operator, but service revenue in the USA will decline as T-Mobile maintains its aggressive strategy.

This report and associated data annex provide:


  • a 5-year forecast of more than 180 mobile and fixed KPIs for North America (NA) and for the two countries in the region

  • an in-depth analysis of the trends, drivers and forecast assumptions for each type of mobile and fixed service, and for the two countries

  • an overview of operator strategies and country-specific topics, which highlights similarities and differences between the two countries

  • a summary of results, key implications and recommendations for mobile and fixed operators.
