Ongoing Efforts to Measure and Document on Mobile Wireless Competition

The Communications Function requires the submission to Congress each year of reports analyzing their state of competition in the mobile wifi industry.

The 17th Mobile Wireless Competition Report was released in December 2014. This report covered data from 2013 and the 1st half of 2014 and looked at factors such as market shares among companies, coverage, and pricing trends. Whenever we released the Seventeenth Mobile Wireless Competition Report, we noted that people would update many of the charts and tables in that report when new data became available.

These days, we are updating many of those charts and tables based on recently collected information relevant to competition in the mobile wifi industry. For example , we are providing home elevators total wireless connections by provider segment; overall mobile voice and mobile broadband coverage; and provider-specific coverage. And, we have also added user-friendly interactive coverage maps. This mid-year update reflects our recently focused efforts to capture essential details in the evolving mobile wifi marketplace.

Among other things, the particular updated information shows:

  • Total wireless connections increased by 23. 5 mil from 2013 to 2014, along with 14. 7 million connections added between the 2nd and 4th quarter of 2014;
  • The post-paid marketplace continues to show noteworthy growth along with 3. 9 million connections added in the 4th quarter 2014; and
  • Quarterly net adds for linked devices almost doubled between the fourth quarter 2013 and 4th quarter 2014.

We have been also releasing a Public Observe seeking input as we prepare the particular Eighteenth Mobile Wireless Competition Document. The Public Notice, about half as long as the previous report’s PN, reflects a more efficient approach to seeking such input. Particularly, the Public Notice seeks public insight to update the information and metrics used in the Seventeenth Annual Cellular Wireless Competition Report.

Please visit the Mobile Wireless Competitors Report website to see the updated information. We encourage all interested stakeholders to respond to the Eighteenth Mobile Wireless Competition Report PN to inform us how we can enhance our analysis of competition in the mobile wifi marketplace.
