Archive report: this report was archived in September 2005 and has not been updated. For current information on USA mobile communications infrastructure, see report USA - Mobile Market - Analysis, Statistics & Forecasts. The US mobile market lacked the centralised planning seen in other countries and developed into a number of incompatible mobile technologies, including AMPS, TDMA, GSM, CDMA and iDEN. With the advent of 2.5G and 3G and the consolidation of mobile operators, two competing mobile technologies emerged, GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS and CDMA/1xRTT/EV-DO. In 2005, mobile operators were racing to rollout the latest 3G networks, causing a boom in the wireless tower industry. Capital constraints and community resistance to tower infrastructure caused mobile operators to outsource their cell sites to independent tower operators.
