BOSTON -- The wholesale circuit-switched voice market will renew its position as a growth segment, reveals new research by leading telecommunications industry research consultancy ATLANTIC-ACM. According to U.S. Long Distance Services Market: Sizing and Share Analysis 2003 - 2008, the latest edition of the long distance industry's chief market analysis, wholesale circuit-switch voice revenues will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.8 percent, reaching $12.8 billion by 2008.

"Most of the resurrected growth in this sector is being driven by aggressive and successful retail long distance service rollouts by the RBOCs," said ATLANTIC-ACM Vice President Taher Bouzayen. "As a result, wholesalers of traditional voice will experience channel growth.

"WilTel, for example, is projected to see its wholesale voice revenues grow at 13.7 percent annually to reach $1.6 billion by 2008. AT&T also is positioned for strong growth in its wholesale voice business with revenues projected to grow at 12.6 percent annually to reach $4.2 billion by 2008. Major contracts -- with SBC in the case of WilTel and big wireless deals in the case of AT&T -- are at the center of each of these firms' growth prospects."

U.S. Long Distance Services Market: Sizing and Share Analysis 2003 - 2008 is affordably priced at $4,950. This annual study is the long distance industry's chief source of information for competitive analysis as well as identifying and sizing market trends and opportunities.
