By: Venkatesh MahaleSenior Research Analyst, Worldwide Telecommunications, Ragupathy VellappaAssociate Research Manager, Courtney MunroeResearch Vice President, Worldwide Telecommunications Research


The IDC Market Perspective presents the trends of service providers' capital expenditure by region in general and a detailed analysis of spending from the top 10 carrier groups.

"The consolidated capex numbers for operators worldwide further declined by 0.7% to reach $308.6 billion in 2018. 5G is expected to be the connectivity of the future. Although with a meager response in the initial years, the service providers will eventually jump on to the 5G bandwagon due to the incentive in terms of speed, latency, and penetration the technology has to offer." — Venkatesh Mahale, assistant research manager, Worldwide Telecommunications Research at IDC
