Statement: FCC Wireless Competition Report

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Federal Communications Commission released its annual report on the state of competition in the wireless marketplace.

The following statement should be attributed to Jonathan Spalter, chair of Mobile Future:

“Once again, the FCC’s competition report has been inspired more by the remembrance of things past, rather than the real-world record. Like something out of Marcel Proust, the more things change in our dynamic mobile marketplace, the more the FCC’s analysis stays the same. It’s unfortunate that the FCC chooses not to recognize what millions of American mobile users see every day – our nation’s ever-changing wireless sector, fueled by $32 billion in annual investment, and endless choice of services, plans, carriers and devices, is the global gold standard of competition.”
