Triple Play Trend Continues As Convergence Draws Nigh
|07 марта 2008|
Research and Markets has added USA Annual Publication, '2008 USA – Telecoms, Wireless and Broadband' to their offerings.
This report profiles the fixed-line, wireless (mobile) and broadband markets in the USA. Also examined is the convergence of these technologies with each other and with digital media such as digital TV and the emergence of new telecommunication services such as VoIP and IPTV. These markets continued their trends towards a triple play model during 2007 and early 2008. In particular, the telcos started making genuine strides towards their vision of triple play by aggressively accelerating their deployment of optic fibre networks across their footprint. Their sense of urgency was highlighted by the rate of wireline losses; both Verizon and AT&T Inc posted fixed-line losses of around 10 percent for 2007. The main beneficiaries of the telcos’ significant churn rates were the cable companies, whose VoIP services enjoyed rapid subscriber gains.
The Internet economy continued its meteoric rise, with sites such as Facebook becoming $100 billion companies virtually overnight, highlighting the enormous scale of network economies that can be harnessed by the Internet’s expansive reach. Online advertising and e-commerce are becoming an increasingly significant share of the overall advertising and retail markets. Microsoft’s bid for Yahoo!, if successful, would give the merged entity, together with Google, a combined 50 percent of the $20 billion per annum online advertising market. This report provides overviews, analyses and detailed statistics on the US fixed-line, wireless and broadband markets including their sub-markets such as DSL, cable, FttH, wireless broadband, utilities broadband, the Internet, VoIP and IPTV.
