Fixed-Line Market Research Reports Analysis and Trends
A telephone line is also referred as a fixed line phone which travels through a solid medium, either metal wire or optical fiber, different from a mobile cellular line, where transmission is through radio waves. Fixed lines generally have a lower price for calling time, and the user hardware costs less than mobile phones, but they are less convenient.
Because the revenues will continue to decrease for traditional local and long-distance voice service due to the advent of wireless telephony and VoIP, fixed-line telephony companies are now providing broadband data and voice as well as managed networking services to enterprise customers, along with the wholesale network capacity, all over fixed wire lines.
In the fixed-line telecommunications market, the revenue is obtained by operators for voice telephony and other non-voice information transmission using fixed lines, instead of wireless systems. Revenues are generated by end-users such as operators, internet services and value-added services.
