Broadband market forecast for Australia
The fixed voice service revenue in Australia is expected to decline at a CAGR of 5.5 percent over 2020-2025, due to the drop in circuit switched subscriptions and fixed voice average revenue per user (ARPU) levels, according to GlobalData.

Fixed broadband revenue is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5 percent over 2020-2025, supported by growth in fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and fixed wireless subscriptions.

Aasif Iqbal, telecom analyst at GlobalData, said: “Fiber lines is expected to remain the dominant fixed broadband technology through 2025, supported by the rising demand for high-speed Internet services and the government’s focus on aggressive fiber to the x (FTTx) network expansions nationwide under the National Broadband Network (NBN) project.

Telstra will lead the fixed voice market through 2025, supported by its strong foothold in both circuit-switched and voice-over Internet protocol (VoIP) services segments.

The leadership of Telstra in the fixed-broadband segment is supported by its strong fiber network coverage and promotional multi-play plans.
