This IDC study analyzes and forecasts the fixed-line revenue for telecom voice and data services in the U.S. small and medium-sized business (SMB) marketplace. The study provides IDC's definitions of SMB and fixed-line telecom voice and data categories, and it presents a 2015 market share analysis of the top telecom providers impacting the small and medium-sized business markets."The market for U.S. telecom services sold into the small and medium-sized business segment is highly competitive and increasing in intensity -- particularly in the medium part of the SMB," says Matt Davis, program director of SMB Telecom Services at IDC. "Cable operators started in the small business segment over a decade ago have taken significant share; now, they are well into their strategic move into the midmarket, setting the stage for a highly competitive environment."
