Industry Profile
Industry Overview
The article presents information on the telecommunication industry in the U.S., as of April 2003. Competition in wireless seems to have frozen carriers from expanding capital. With uncertain revenue streams, carriers appear to be reluctant to spend on new network ventures or expanded capabilities. This may provide some rationale for industry consolidation. The shifting of consumer demand among modes has consequences for revenue and network capacity. For example, shifts away from standard wireline services towards mobile wireless or high-speed access reduce at least additional lines, perhaps primary lines, and curtails billable usage.
