Remarks Of FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski As Prepared For Delivery GSMA Mobile Asia Congress
Thank you, Anne Bouverot and GSMA, for inviting me to speak. It’s a pleasure to be at
GSMA’s Mobile Asia Congress.
As this conference makes clear, the world is going mobile. There are roughly four billion mobile subscribers worldwide with about six billion subscriptions. China alone added thirty million subscriptions in just the last quarter, and India added another twenty-one million. Global mobile penetration now tops 80%, and it recently passed 100% in the U.S.
