Wireline Spending by US Businesses to Remain Flat While Mobile Spending to Increase by 23.5% Between 2010 and 2015

Revenue prospects for the telecom industry in the United States look bright, despite a sluggish economy and slow hiring, according to new figures from Insight Research.

Indeed, even though the country still faces financial hurdles, businesses in the United States expect to increase their spending at a 13 percent compound annual growth rate by the end of 2015, Insight said. The firm expects business telecom spending – wireline and mobile – to jump from $146 billion in 2010 to more than $269 billion in 2015.

Of course, wireless outlay will outpace that of fixed services.

“The year 2010, like 2009, was all about a shaky economy, unemployment hovering at 10 percent, and retrenchment in every industry sector we examined,” said Robert Rosenberg, president of Insight. “With no new business formations and fewer employees in existing businesses, growth in demand for telecom services is coming from wireless, because wireless services tend to make existing employees more productive and gives businesses new ways to reach potential customers.”

To that point, U.S. businesses will keep their wireline expenses flat, Insight said, but they’ll push their mobility costs up by 23.5 percent between 2010 and 2015. The biggest spenders will come from the construction, financial, insurance, real estate, professional services and transportation verticals, Insight said.
