The U.S. communications market will reach $406 billion in 2014 as mobile data revenue climbs to $94 billion, surpassing fixed voice (PSTN + VoIP) during the forecast period, according to the latest report from Pyramid Research, the telecom research arm of the Light Reading Communications Network.

The U.S. communications market, including traditional pay-TV, generated $359 billion in service revenue in 2008 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.5 percent from year-end 2009 to year-end 2014, reaching $406 billion in 2014, according to Dan Locke, Senior Analyst at Pyramid Research and author of the report.
