Fixed-line telecommunications - statistics & facts

Fixed-line telecommunications commonly refer to the wired networks that support fixed broadband and telephone services. These forms of communication can be viewed as a connection to an end customer, by means of a cable, through which the user can connect to the internet or make a phone call. Fixed data, or fixed broadband, involves the use of a variety of technologies for any high-speed data transmission to a residence or a business. Methods of transmission include cable modem internet, digital subscriber line (DSL) internet, fiber optic cable, and other fixed broadband technology connections. A landline telephone, or fixed phone line, is a telephone that transmits signals using metal wire or fiber optic cable, as opposed to wireless transmission as seen in mobile phones.

Fixed data

Revenue from fixed data communication services is expected to exceed 423 billion U.S. dollars in 2021, a rise of close to five percent compared to the previous year. The number of fixed broadband subscriptions worldwide has continued to grow, reaching close to 1.18 billion by the end of 2020. In terms of countries with some of the fastest fixed broadband internet speeds, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Monaco all score highly, with the majority of the fastest speeds recorded in countries in Europe including Romania, Denmark, and France.

Fixed voice

Revenue from fixed voice communication services is predicted to reach close to 170 billion U.S. dollars in 2021, a fall of just over one percent compared to the previous year. Recent figures suggest there were around 915 million fixed telephone line subscriptions worldwide, with the market experiencing a gradual decline from the 2006 peak of over 1.26 billion. The advancement of mobile network technology, as well as older, networking infrastructure such as copper wiring becoming obsolete, has meant landline telephone use has declined in popularity. Instead, consumers are looking toward a newer digital technology known as voice over internet protocol (VoIP) which refers to phone calls that are made through the internet, rather than through a regular landline or a mobile network.
