U.S. a Step Behind in Mobile Connections

The United States is behind the mobile community in other parts of the world due to the lack of competition between companies controlling digital protocols.

Using technology as the backbone, the Federal Communications Commission has issued more than 1,300 licenses for digital protocols in the U.S. Overseas, however, the landscape is very different because governments have agreed to just one system.

In a practical sense, for example, using your mobile phone to peruse the Web to check news and other information, or making wireless calls between countries, is very routine overseas. Although N. America is number one in the world for Internet usage, the use of the Web in a mobile sense is still in the future.
