CDMA Operators in the American Continent Report Subscribers Reach 150 Million
Posted on 9-Sep-2005 22:16 | Tags Filed under: News



The CDMA Development Group (CDG) has reported the total number of CDMA subscribers in the Americas reached 149.6 million in June 2005. In North America, the CDMA user base surpassed 100 million and in Latin America, CDMA had 49.2 million users growing at an annual rate of 41 percent. More than 61 percent of CDMA subscribers in the Americas access 3G CDMA2000 1X and 1xEV-DO services.

"CDMA is a leading technology in the Western Hemisphere, with dominant market share in North America and a 25 percent share of the rapidly expanding Latin America market," said Perry LaForge, executive director of the CDG. "CDMA2000 is the 3G platform in the region. The majority of CDMA operators have deployed CDMA2000 1X and many of them have upgraded, or are in the process of upgrading, to broadband 1xEV-DO. Close to 100 million subscribers in cities and remote areas across the region are using the most advanced CDMA-based wireless technologies available today."

There are 82 CDMA operators in 23 countries in the Americas, and 56 of them have deployed CDMA2000 technologies. 12 operators in Bermuda, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, the U.S. and Venezuela have launched 1xEV-DO, and 11 more are currently in the process of upgrading their networks.
