U.S. carriers seek to gain market share via unlimited data and investing in accelerated network speeds

Wireless revenue rose 3.3% year-to-year to $61.5 billion among U.S. carriers in Technology Business Research Inc.’s (TBR) 4Q16 U.S. & Canada Mobile Operator Benchmark as all operators, except AT&T, generated higher equipment revenue from equipment installment plans (EIP) and leasing programs. T-Mobile remained the only U.S. Tier 1 operator to garner sufficient subscriber additions to increase service revenue, generating growth of 10.5% year-to-year in 4Q16, which is causing Verizon and AT&T to revitalize their postpaid strategies to boost phone additions in 2017.
