Canada - Telecoms Infrastructure, Operators, Regulations - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

The Canadian telecom market continues to show steady growth as operators invest in network upgrades. This investment has been channelled into LTE infrastructure to capitalise of consumer demand for mobile data services. There has also been a concentration of investment in fixed-line infrastructure, focussed on FttP and, among cable broadband providers, upgrades to the DOCSIS3.1 standard. This is having the effect that the DSL segment is beginning to lose market share as customers are migrated to fibre.

At the same time, fixed-line telephony services are dwindling as customers make greater use of mobile networks and VoIP options. Revenue from the broadband and mobile sectors is underpinning overall telecom sector revenue while the fixed-voice sector continues to decline.
