Mobile Future Statement on FCC Wireless Competition Report

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Federal Communications Commission released an assessment of competition in the wireless marketplace.

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

“It is surprising that while the report shows that 89.6% of Americans can choose from five or more service providers, the Commission’s latest assessment does not acknowledge what 300 million American wireless consumers have come to experience every day – a competitive U.S. wireless market that delivers more innovative choices than ever before. Skyrocketing consumer demand, declining prices, unparalleled wireless investment, and astounding growth in new services, products, usage and options clearly point to a highly competitive wireless sector that continues to meet and exceed consumer expectations.”
