CTIA To US FCC: We’re #1!

The ctia, otherwise knows as the industry association representing the wireless carriers in the U.S., recently told the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that based on some key factors, the U.S. wireless market is leading the way. They compared our wireless market to the top 10 wireless markets based on the countries gross domestic product and found that in six of the seven key indicators, the U.S. is the top dog.

I personally think the CTIA took a rather myopic view of the world, only looking at voice. They didn't bother to look at SMS-where Americans are getting gouged left and right-and at data services, where we actually aren't doing too bad, considering unlimited data plans are generally fairly cheap compared to most other countries. What do you think about this?
