Powerful evidence US wireless market is world's most competitive

Kudos to Steve Pociask of the American Consumer Institute for another outstanding piece of analysis that debunks the notion that the US wireless market is not competitive and requires net neutrality/open access regulation.

The powerfully straightforward conclusions are:

  • The US has more choice and less concentration in wireless than Europe;
  • Americans use their wireless almost four times as much as Europe;
  • US wireless prices are the lowest in the world save for Hong Kong.

What's wrong with that picture?

  • Absolutely nothing!
  • There is no need for net neutrality or open access regulations.

eBay-Skype's petition to the FCC is a bogus idea, based on bogus analysis, with bogus conclusions.

  • The Skype petition for Carterfone regulations is naked corporate welfare at its worst.
