This report examines the short-and medium-term economic and profitability outlook for Canada’s Telecommunications Industry.

Document Highlights

  • Canadian Consumers—Canadian households are facing challenging times. Weak job prospects and high levels of indebtedness are making it difficult for Canadians to increase their spending on telecommunications services.
  • Paid-TV—Despite the growing popularity of IPTV (Internet protocol television), paid-TV subscription rates have been declining since 2012. This trend will continue, with Canadians spending more time viewing content online at the expense of traditional TV.
  • Internet Services—Internet services have become the backbone of consumers’ home entertainment. With growth now surpassing that of the wireless segment, Internet services will soon generate more revenues than the broadcasting distribution and wireline phone segment.
