Worldwide telecoms service revenue is projected to grow at a CAGR of 1.8% between 2022 to 2027, up from a 1% CAGR for the period between 2017 and 2022. Traditional telecoms services such as mobile handsets, mobile broadband and fixed voice and fixed broadband will account for the majority (72%) of telecoms retail revenue in 2027. Revenue growth for traditional services will be driven by higher data spend, particularly in North America and emerging Asia–Pacific.
