Fixed vs. Wireless: Consumers' Shifting Broadband Preferences

Over the past decade, a growing percentage of US households are connected to the internet but do not receive home internet service from a traditional home internet provider. The bulk of these consumers are "mobile-only," connected via a smartphone or tablet. With the launch of 5G home internet, and new low-orbit satellite networks, the market is poised for further shifts. This report examines consumer demand for broadband connectivity, including demand for new network types and the rationales for broadband cord-cutting. It includes forecasts of home internet and mobile-only subscribers across the US, Canada, and Western Europe.
