Surprise: Verizon and AT&T face declining growth in mobile video, Ooyala says

Just as major U.S. wireless carriers Verizon (NYSE: VZ) and AT&T (NYSE: T) finally launch major new platforms to address the market, the explosive growth in mobile video consumption appears to be slowing down, according to online video firm Ooyala. 

Ooyala reported mobile video views have increased more than six-fold in the last two years, soaring from 6.3 percent of all views in the third quarter of 2012 to 45.1 percent of all views during the third quarter of 2015. But those figures actually mark a slowdown, Ooyala observed: Mobile video enjoyed a growth rate of more than 1,000 percent during the three-year span ending in the first quarter of this year, and an 840 percent growth rate from the second quarter of 2012 to the second quarter of 2015.
