The total number of wireless subscribers in America now exceeds 180 million, a penetration rate of more than 60%. "The wireless industry continues to grow because it has proven its worth to the consumer," said CTIA President and CEO Steve Largent. "Wireless phones have become a lifestyle tool, allowing consumers to communicate and connect how they want, when they want and where they want." The data released during the CTIA WIRELESS 2005, the world's largest wireless trade event, show a vibrant and growing industry. Key indicators such as revenue, capital investment, employment, cell site construction and minutes of use registered impressive increases over the previous year."</i><br /><br />CTIA's semi-annual wireless industry survey has presented some positive results. If you love to keep tabs on the wireless industry statistics, then do not miss this one. ;-) I was pleased to learn that <i>"the real price of a wireless minute had fallen by 81% in the ten-year period ending in 2004"</i> and that carriers are offering more services for less money.
