This decline in revenue is largely attributed to an increase in the quality of substitute products, as the improved quality of wireless telecommunications has encouraged downstream clients to move away from wired telecommunications and towards wireless telecommunications.

PSTN rental

The public switched telephone network (PSTN) is estimated to be the largest segment for operators accounting for 39.5% of industry revenue in 2016-17. PTSN is an international telephone system that uses copper wires to carry analogue voice data. Customers are charged a fee to access the network irrespective of the volume of calls made, sometimes even just to gain access to broadband. Line rental fees are charged by BT, which owns most of the UK telephone network, to cover maintenance and repair expenses. Over the past five years the revenue attributed to this segment has increased as increased demand for internet connections has supported growth. PTSN lines are required to receive fixed-line broadband connections.
