U.S. Wireless Consumers Get the Most Value for their Money

Share

 

America’s wireless customers get the most value for their money according to a new, comprehensive analysis of wireless plans offered in 36 countries from NERA Economic Consulting. NERA’s data shows that U.S. consumers save up to nearly $10 billion each year, stemming from the superior value that U.S. wireless providers offer.

U.S. Ranks First in Value in Proposition

Comprehensive 36-Country Study Examined Key Value-Driving Factors

NERA compiled data on 1,554 wireless plans from 213 wireless providers across 36 countries.

The data included key factors like minutes, amount of data included, SMS inclusion, number of lines, network coverage, download speeds, and price. They also gathered country-specific attributes like geographic size and per capita income, as these factors can drive differences in cost and value considerations.

Each country NERA studied received a score for its position in different country peer groups. Combining the scores of each peer set, the U.S. ranked first in value proposition.

Tangible Consumer Savings

NERA’s data shows that U.S. consumers may save up to nearly $10 billion each year, stemming from the superior value America’s wireless consumers receive.

The U.S. wireless industry offers tremendous value to consumers, as this comprehensive study conclusively proves. Better speeds, more coverage, and lower prices—all driven by intense competition and focus on serving consumers—mean America’s wireless users get great bang for their buck.
