Overview of the CLEC market
After the U.S. government passed the Telecommunication Act, 1996, the concept of competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) emerged on the market forefront. The advent of CLEC is likely to increase competition between the local and the long distance phone service providers.
Basically, CLECs are local area businesses that purchase or lease telephone lines and switches from major telecom operators and provide the consumers with alternate telephone services. These carriers offer better quality services than ILECs and offer it to consumers at a reasonable price.
The research report cites that the rising demand for highly developed telecommunication services, enhanced bandwidth, and the increased usage of cost-efficient tariff plans by customers are driving the global CLEC market.
Despite increasing demand from consumers, the service providers seem reluctant to expand the network coverage, which in turn is hampering the growth of the global CLEC market. Expansion of the networks will require high initial investment for the deployment of a CLEC exchange to fulfil the infrastructural requirements, which is deterring the service providers from expanding the network, states the report.
