It’s officially 2020 and we have new data to show us how the world is connecting.

With our third State of the Network report, we reflect on an industry marked by evolving challenges and a special brand of unpredictability. The global bandwidth market is navigating price erosion and the limits of cable capacity. International call traffic has continued to decline across the voice market, with falling carrier traffic becoming a fact of life. Internet bandwidth and traffic growth has gradually slowed in recent years, but remains brisk.

This is the environment in which we take our annual snapshot.

That’s right—as we say every year—this annual reflection is simply a snapshot of the telecom market right now. The challenges, the trends, the regional stories, the shifting profile of cable owners—this is where we start in 2020.

As always, this analysis is created by TeleGeography data. It was collected throughout 2019 and you can find even more of it within our full suite of research apps.
