    CTIA Filed to FCC Comments on Mobile Competition Report

    In 2015, the wireless industry became more vibrant and vigorously competitive than ever before. The extremely high adoption and usage rate in the wireless industry, as well as the astronomical year-over-year increases in these numbers, demonstrate the continued dynamism of the wireless industry. CTIA – The Wireless Association® (“CTIA”) urges the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC” or “Commission”) to confirm the existence of effective competition in the wireless industry as demonstrated by the data in these comments. Since the release of the last Mobile Wireless Competition Report, there have been tens of millions more wireless connections added nationwide and data show that smartphone adoption is now at or above 50% in every demographic group. Data use on mobile wireless networks increased more than 25% from the end of 2013 to the end of 2014, and Americans are rapidly adopting wireless technologies and demand for more innovation, functionality, and network expansion shows no signs of slowing.
