Spotlight on Canada

Cooperation necessary in this tricky market

Just north of the US border lies the second largest country on earth. Canada’s population of 34 million is just over one tenth of the US population. In many ways, Canada is quite similar to the US. However, the mobile environment is quite different.

Canadians are still in the middle of the pack when it comes to mobile penetration. While the country was an early adopter of mobile technology, inexpensive land line phone services kept the growth of mobile at relatively modest levels throughout the 1990s. As of June 2010, Canadian wireless subscribers numbered 23.4 million.
