How many wireless subscriber connections are there in the U.S. (as of December 2010)?

A. 255.6 millionB. 302.9 millionC. 455.3 millionD. None of the above

How much do you really know about the proliferation of mobile communications in the U.S.? Take this quiz and test your knowledge. The questions and answers here are based on the results of the December 2010 Semi-Annual Wireless Industry Survey conducted by CTIA-The Wireless Association. With more than 270 industry members, the association released the results of its latest survey on March 22, during its CTIA conference in Orlando, FL. Among the topics explored in the survey are: how many wireless connections we're making; the number of texts we send and receive; and how much we pay every month to do these things. The figures paint a picture of rising, nearly insatiable demand, which speaks to a need for increased spectrum, according to CTIA. "In order to meet the demands by consumers and businesses, we need more spectrum so our wireless ecosystem can keep fueling the 'virtuous cycle' of innovation and competition," says Steve Largent, president and CEO. (Yes, he's the same Steve Largent who was a long-time wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks, later inducted into the Hall of Fame. He then served with the U.S. House of Representatives, representing the state of Oklahoma.)
