Key drivers at a glance for each North America market

  • Mobile: the number of 5G connections will grow rapidly once 5G handsets become more widely available and 5G network coverage grows
  • Mobile: growth in the number of connections will be the main driver of revenue growth because mobile ARPU will remain largely constant
  • Mobile: low levels of competition in the mobile segment will lead to slow but stable growth in mobile revenue during the forecast period
  • Fixed: fixed revenue will grow during the forecast period despite a large decline in voice revenue, mainly due to growth in the number of NGA connections
  • Fixed: fixed broadband ASPU will increase between 2018 and 2024 due to a lack of competition and because consumers are willing to pay more for faster services
  • Fixed: fixed broadband will be the main driver of revenue growth in the fixed segment thanks to growth in both ARPU and household penetration
  • Specialist business services: enterprise business revenue growth will be driven by revenue from non-operators that provide other business services

  • Pay TV: cord-cutting will continue in North America, and traditional pay-TV service revenue will decline

Individual country forecasts

  • Canada: forecast changes
  • USA: the mobile sector will be the main driver of telecoms revenue growth thanks to an increase in mobile penetration during the forecast period
  • USA: fixed broadband ASPU is forecast to grow between 2018 and 2024, mostly because of the low level of competition in the market

  • USA: forecast changes
