Insight Research: Telecom CAPEX to Hit $224 Billion by 2015

The Insight Research Corporation is predicting that cCapital expenditures (CAPEX) by telecommunications service providers will increase at a compounded rate of 2.4 percent, from $199.6 billion in 2010 to $224.5 billion in 2015.

"Telecommunications and Capital Investments 2010-2015: Looking Beyond the Financial Crisis" notes that CAPEX spending among fixed-line operators will continue to decline, but mobile operators in developing countries will continue increasing their capital outlays to meet the pent up demand for service. On the other hand, when mobile operator CAPEX spending in the developed countries does rebound, it will be sluggish.
