This IDC Market Perspective presents the trends of service providers' capital expenditure by region in general.

"The consolidated capex numbers for operators worldwide further declined by 2.9% to reach $300.9 billion in 2017 as operator revenue fails to keep pace with the capex demand. As the industry starts to look at 5G, service providers need to identify practical ways to increase their revenue streams by building a bridge between the existing and new technologies." — Venkatesh Mahale, assistant research manager, Worldwide Telecommunications Research at IDC
