Mid-Year 2021 U.S. Carrier Ethernet LEADERBOARD

Lumen retains #1 rank

Protracted effects of the pandemic throughout the U.S. continue to suppress expansion of Ethernet service installations. We see strength in demand for Ethernet DIA and Ethernet-based wavelength services. Conversely, the shift to hybrid SD-WAN solutions is negatively impacting switched metro Ethernet and Ethernet access to MPLS services.

2020 U.S. Fiber Lit Buildings LEADERBOARD

“The base of fiber lit buildings in the U.S. expanded in 2020, although the pace of new installations was hampered by the pandemic. As the economy rebounds in 2021, fiber providers have opportunities to monetize the millions of small and medium U.S. commercial buildings without fiber, as well as larger multi-tenant buildings with only a single fiber provider.”
