U.S. Service Provider Capex Returns to 2014 Levels

A two-year decline in private capital investment in U.S. broadband infrastructure from 2014 to 2016 appears to be over, according to a preliminary USTelecom analysis of the 2017 capital expenditures of wireline, wireless, and cable broadband service providers.

U.S. broadband companies, excluding independent competitive local providers and fiber operators, have invested between $72 and $74 billion in network infrastructure in 2017, compared to $70.6 billion in 2016, showing at least an increase of nearly $1.5 billion, UST says.
