Even though the U.S. is larger and both the nation and individual states are more geographically diverse than most countries, we have made great strides in rolling-out next generation networks, and as a result, the U.S. is a world leader in 4G LTE.
Five years after launching its first 4G LTE markets, the U.S. has:
- Over 219 million active LTE subscribers – more than half of all U.S. connections are 4G LTE;
- 99.5% of the population is covered by 4G LTE;
- More than 305 million Americans – 95% – covered by three or more providers’ LTE networks; and
- 10-30+ Mbps average throughput performance as demonstrated by robust third-party testing
