Dropped call: Increasing regulation is likely to stifle industry growth

The Wired Telecommunications Carriers industry offers local and long-distance voice services using the public switched telephone network, along with wholesale access to networks for use by other companies to provide voice communication services to customers. A shift away from the industry has been due to new technologies such as wireless telephony and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). In addition, industry operators have suffered because of growing demand for fiber-optic broadband internet access. Consumer preference for more flexible mobile services has also negatively affected the industry’s performance. Consequently, industry revenue is expected to fall at an annualized rate of 5.6% to $2.8 billion over the five years to 2018, with revenue falling 13.2% in 2018 alone...purchase to read more.
