Telecom services now include fixed-network services (data retail, Internet retail, voice retail and wholesale) and mobile services.
Fixed-data services — Includes all dedicated/private line, packet and circuit-switched access services (for example, frame relay, asynchronous transfer mode, IP, Integrated Services Digital Network, DSL, multichannel multipoint distribution service [MMDS] and satellite) retail revenue. No differentiation is made between the type of traffic or application carried by these services. All types of transmissions — nonvoice data, image, video, fax, interactive services and even voice — can be carried by these services regardless of whether the source format is analog or digital. All revenue reflects service provider annualized retail revenue — paid for by the business and residential end user of the service; no wholesale or carrier-to-carrier revenue is included.
