ATLANTIC-ACM Projects Increase in Cable Service Revenues

By Mini Swamy, TMCnet Contributor

Boston-based ATLANTIC-ACM is a premium provider of strategic research and consulting services serving the telecommunications and information industries, and “Wireless Wins, Wireline Wanes: U.S. Telecom Wired and Wireless Sizing and Share 2010-2015 “is the 17th edition of the telecommunications industry’s chief market sizing study. 

Research and analysis demonstrated that cable companies appear to be gaining traction and capturing share in the business segment.

This highly quantitative, 270-plus page research study provides detailed, very relevant forecasts and statistics by product and company to provide an essential, comprehensive view of the industry.

"Cable operators have done a good job of changing their image from low-service, consumer-oriented behemoths to being able to deliver value in small business services,” Judy Reed Smith, ATLANTIC-ACM, CEO, said.

Smith added that cable operators had carved a niche for themselves in the business segment and were capable of addressing the needs of medium and large sized business as well.

According to the research study, cable service revenues were projected to increase at a 5.1 percent compound annual growth rate, CAGR, in short, and as far as individual products were concerned, business cable modem service revenues were slated to do well, growing by 10.1 percent CAGR over the same time frame.

Driven by a growing demand for connectivity and capacity to support bandwidth-intensive applications, IP Access, IP VPN and Transport products were also projected to succeed. Given the fact that Cable providers have widened the scope of focus, the projection appeared more meaningful.

'Wireless Wins, Wireline Wanes: U.S. Telecom Wired and Wireless Sizing and Share 2010-2015' is scheduled to be released Monday, August 16.

This research report is available in several forms. ATLANTIC-ACM’s Wireline and Wireless Market Master subscription contains all the forms, the hard copy meant for individual use, the corporate site license, an interactive forecaster for custom market statistics and data dissection, and extended analyst time. Apart from this, any of the forms can be obtained separately.

ATLANTIC-ACM, apart from producing the industry’s principal benchmarking, sizing and opportunity studies, also assists clients in evaluating telecommunications opportunities for successful investment, market entry, and long-term planning.
