We’re proud that America’s wireless industry delivers the mobile experience consumers deserve: remarkably fast speeds and nearly ubiquitous coverage as well as more data for less cost than ever before. Wireless investment—over $200 billion this decade alone—has helped create this world-leading mobile ecosystem.
The key to this success has been offering an open, transparent mobile experience free from interference—so Americans can choose the content and apps they want, when and how they want it. Consumers demand an open internet, and wireless providers deliver it. Because we believe in net neutrality and in the intensely competitive wireless market, meeting the needs of our subscribers is paramount.Today, almost every person in America has a mobile phone, and nearly every wireless consumer can choose—and easily switch—between three or more mobile broadband providers. But our nation’s laws governing the Internet were last updated two decades ago. In 1995, fewer than one in six people were mobile voice subscribers, pagers were nearly as popular as cellphones, and high-speed mobile broadband remained years away.
