'Canada: Data Segment to Boom after LTE Spectrum Allocation,' a new Country Intelligence Report by Pyramid Research, offers a precise, incisive profile of Canada's mobile and fixed telecommunications and pay-TV markets based on comprehensive proprietary data and insights from our research in the Canadian market. Published annually, this presentation-quality, executive-level report provides detailed analysis of the near-term opportunities, competitive dynamics and evolution of demand by service type and technology/platform across the fixed telephony and broadband, mobile and pay-TV sectors, in addition to a review of key regulatory trends.

Key Findings:

- Pyramid Research estimates the Canadian telecom industry will generate revenue of US$46.0bn in 2014. The largest contribution will come from the mobile voice segment. The top two operators, Bell and Rogers, which provide fixed, mobile, Internet and pay-TV services, will account for 52.1% of overall service revenue in 2014. Pyramid Research expects to see overall service revenue grow at a 2.5% CAGR from 2014 to 2019.

- The fixed/mobile revenue split will be inclined toward mobile by 2019. Mobile revenue will increase as users substitute mobile voice services in place of traditional fixed voice. Additionally, increasing demand for mobile data services will drive mobile market revenue past fixed market revenue. LTE will be by far the dominant technology, accounting for 85.3% of mobile subscriptions by 2019.

- Over the next five years, operators should seize opportunities in the LTE marketplace. The Canadian government auctioned off LTE spectrum in the 700MHz band in early 2014, with an additional 2500MHz auction planned for early 2015. Opportunities also exist in the fixed broadband segment with a predicted 1.8m additions over the forecast period, led by xDSL and FTTH/B network technologies.
