Telecom Operators Intelligence - Overview

Canada Telecom Operators Country Intelligence Report


The telecom service revenue growth in Canada over 2019-2024 will be driven by mobile data and fixed broadband segments. Mobile data will be the largest revenue-contributing segment over 2019-2024 driven by rising mobile internet subscriptions, fast growing M2M connections and growing adoption of 4G/5G services over the forecast period. Mobile voice revenues will drop from an estimated $5.2 billion in 2019 to $3.1 billion by the end of 2024 due to the growing consumer shift towards OTT-based communication solutions and a reduction in voice tariffs. Fixed broadband revenue will grow at a CAGR of 3.9% during the forecast period of 2019-2024, driven by growth projected in cable and FTTx subscriptions over the forecast period.

- The overall telecom and pay-TV service revenue in Canada will grow at a CAGR of 3.1% during 2019-2024.
- Mobile revenue will account for 49.5% of the total telecom revenue by 2024, driven by increasing adoption of mobile broadband and 4G services.
- The share of 4G in total mobile subscriptions will decline from 90.2% in 2019 to 70.1% by year-end 2024 due to projected growth in adoption of 5G services following its expected arrival in Canada in 2020. GlobalData expects that 5G will constitute 28.3% share of total mobile subscriptions by the end of 2024.
- The top three mobile operators, Bell Canada, Rogers and Telus accounted for a 90.3% share of overall mobile subscriptions in 2019. We expect the competition to intensify as the regulator focuses on facilitating entry of new players and operation of smaller regional players.
