BOONTON, N.J., March 27, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) --
The $35 billion U.S. private line services market is expected to decline
one percent annually over the next five years, as the shift to packet-
based services offsets demand for higher bandwidth private lines, says

"The need to backhaul data-intensive wireless services and increased local bandwidth for wireline data and video services will
prevent significant revenue erosion for the foreseeable future," Caulfield concluded.
