    Do have a look at the attached url from ventureblog which shows US wirelessARPU is higher than other countries inspite of low usage..

    In the United States, the wireless carriers got cold feet about “losing control of the customer” and tried to control what was rolled out to consumers. Many carriers came out of the wireline telecoms world — Baby Bells that ran lines to your house. In that world, long distance and data services became commodities. People switch them out whenever a cheaper, better one comes along. They saw the same thing happening in Europe and Asia. Conventional wisdom says that the way to prevent that from happening in the wireless world is to ensure the carrier controls and profits from every application that comes out over their service.

    Conventional wisdom killed m-Commerce.
