Verizon bullish on continued Fios strength, FWA prospects

His comments appear to reflect a broader trend in the U.S. broadband market. A new report released by analyst company Parks Associates on Wednesday showed that the percentage of households with standalone broadband service reached 41% in Q1 2021, up from 33% in Q1 2018. The cost of this service has risen 64% over the past decade, rising from $39 per month per household in 2011 to $64 in 2021. The report was based off a survey of 10,000 U.S. broadband households.

A drop off in pay-TV subscriptions has played a large part in falling bundle rates, but another package combination is gaining steam. As Parks Associates senior analyst Kristen Hanich noted in a statement, “the fastest growing” bundle segment “is a standard double-play combining home internet and mobile service.” The percentage of households with this pairing increased from little over 10% in Q1 2019 to 19% in Q1 2021, the report showed.
