Wireless takes over Wireline in customer spending in US
Posted: 20-Oct-2004 [Source: TNS Telecoms]

[Wireless services accounted for 30% of monthly telecom expenses in US households during Q2 2004 averaging $47.87 per month.]

Jenkintown, PA -- Total U.S. household spending on wireless services now represents the largest share of dollars spent on telecommunications services according to the most recent data released by TNS Telecoms, a global provider of market information and analysis for the telecommunications industry. In the second quarter of 2004, 30 percent of spending on telecommunications services was dedicated to wireless service while wired line service represented 29 percent of spending, a drop of three percent from the previous quarter. The average U.S. household spends $47.87 on wireless service each month and a total of $158.88 on all telecom services. At the same time, the second quarter results also show that growth in total telecom spending has stalled with a decline of one percent from the spending in the previous quarter.

"These results represent the nature of the hyper-dynamic telecommunications market today," says Charles White, vice president of TNS Telecoms. "As the total size of the market stalls service providers will increasingly be battling against other telecom services for growth."

As of the second quarter of this year, 70 percent of households have at least one wireless phone with the average household with a wireless phone spending $69.94 each month, an amount which continues to grow. Alternatively, 96 percent of households have a fixed wired line in their home with an average spending of $54.78, but both of these wired line numbers continue to decline, albeit slowly.
