What 3G Device Adoption Really Means

Tuesday, 30 September 2008

After a slow start, the U.S. has caught up with Western Europe in the adoption of 3G. According to data-research firm comScore, 28.4 percent of American mobile subscribers now have 3G devices versus 28.3 percent in the largest countries in Europe.

Very bad interpretation. It isn’t important how many people buy a device with 3G capabilities, but, in fact, it is important how widespread the network coverage is. As far as I know Europe’s 3G coverage has the highest density worldwide.
