The ongoing trend towards consolidation has continued its momentum in Q413, with the further mergers and acquisitions and rumoured tie-ups between companies. The smaller players are finding it more difficult to compete with the likes of Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobil, and are becoming targets for these companies to consume. One such example is Cincinnati Bell, which is considering the sale of its wireless business amid falling revenues and fierce competition. Instead, it will look to maintain its broadband internet business in order to boost its interest in data centre company, CyrusOne. As a traditional fixed telephone company established in the Cincinnati region before 1900, this would represents one of the first examples of the transition from voice to data
and could signal the beginning of a trend in the industry. The US - like many mature markets - is seeing its fortunes depend increasingly on services rather than infrastructure. This leaves the country´s large incumbent - and small regional - telephone companies in a difficult place.
Analysts estimate the mobile market in the US reached 336.2mn subscribers at the end of Q213. This is a yearon- year (y-o-y) increase of 3.6%. The number of net additions in the year ended March 2013 was 11.483mn.
Analysts estimate there were around 91.143mn fixed voice subscribers (PSTN, cable, VoIP) in the market at the end of Q313. Most operators reported declines y-o-y.
The fixed broadband market reached 96.078mn in Q313 according to analyst estimates.
