New Wireless Study Compares EU to U.S.

This week GSMA released a study by Navigant Economics comparing wireless performance in the EU and the U.S.

Key findings show that here in the U.S., we are deploying LTE at a much faster pace than our European counterparts, with 19% of American wireless connections on LTE by the end of 2013 compared to only 2% in the EU.  American connections, already 75% faster than the EU average, are the result of increased U.S. investment in mobile broadband networks. And while EU consumers may pay less per month for wireless services, we use 5 times more voice and twice as much data in the U.S. – meaning we pay far less per unit of usage.
