2017 BWA Survey

In late 2016 and well into 2017, The Carmel Group spent hundreds of hours building and running two separate 80+ question surveys addressed to an exclusive base of members of the two U.S. BWA/fixed wireless trade groups, WISPA and WCA International. A response rate of more than double that of “normal”, “outside” surveys was achieved, capturing answers from 169 out of 555 trade groups’ operators, and 20+ of 44 trade groups’ equipment vendors. This one-of-a kind, unique data base would represent a value of several tens of thousands of dollars if it were capable of being recreated by others today (which it is not). Questions and charted and analyzed answers range from growth optimism levels, to expected vendor equipment and improvements, to licensed, unlicensed and “lightly licensed” spectrum expectations, to monthly churn, ARPU, and revenues. Additional information about ancillary services, challenges, opportunities, access and tranmission points is included, to name but a small few.

The Carmel Group, located in Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA, was founded in 1996 as a spin-off from Paul Kagan Associates. Consulting, especially telecom, media, and technology litigation support and competitive analysis, research, publishing, journalism, and conference support, are our key areas of activity.


The Carmel Group also prides itself on four decades’ worth of business development strategic advisory services, merger and acquisition advisory services, and investment advisory services for companies in the telecommunications, digital media, mobile communications, and high technology sectors. Early focus on the Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) industry was supplemented a few years later by a broader refocus on the larger pay TV and broadcast video industries, and recently eMobility, iMobility, and the Internet of Things, which now also leads us into an additional focus on the new online video/Over-The-Top (OTT) sides of video distribution.
