Over a thousand companies have been licensed around the world to provide mobile service thanks to the widespread introduction of competition. Handset prices have dropped tremendously due to growing market sizes, which permit economies of scale, technological enhancements and, in some cases, cross-subsidization of handset prices. (...)
