25 Awesome Charts On The State Of The Wireless Industry

Editor’s Note: A great summary for everyone who sees mobile marketing in their future.

May 21, 2010: summarized from Business Insider -- The Federal Communications Commission just released its latest massive report on the state of the U.S. wireless industry. The basic story: Smartphone penetration is getting huge, teens are texting up a storm, voice usage is going down, and data revenue -- while growing -- isn't making up for the decline in voice revenue.

As FBR Capital Markets analysts David Dixon and Dutch Fox note today, it's the first time the FCC did NOT conclude that the wireless industry is "competitive," despite no material changes in the industry over the past year.

The analysts' conclusion: The FCC may put restrictions on Verizon and AT&T during the next spectrum auction to slow their dominance, giving Sprint Nextel and T-Mobile a boost.
