Competition Works! New data shows U.S. wireless market most competitive in OECD by far

May 13, 2009

The latest wireless statistics submitted to the FCC today show that the U.S. leads the OECD in wireless competition, use and price; the U.S. is not falling behind.

  • These data show why:
    • Monopoly net neutrality regulations are unnecessary;
    • The U.S. leads the world in wireless broadband adoption and use; and
    • Broadband mobility is as important as broadband speed to U.S. consumers.

The CTIA study is based on Merrill Lynch’s research of OECD data. Please read the report’s summary findings below:

The price per minute of service in the United States is the lowest of the 26 OECD countries tracked by Merrill Lynch.

Consumers in the United States have the highest minutes of use per month of the 26 OECD countries tracked by Merrill Lynch.

The United States has the lowest HHI of the 26 OECD countries tracked by Merrill Lynch.

In the United States, the top four carriers represent 86% of the market, making it the most competitive market of the 26 OECD countries reviewed.”
