In fact, how they managed to get themselves out of the mess we're in now is a mystery because, on paper, they should've had more difficulty (government-run suppliers, different languages, etc.).
Cell phone service in the rest of the world is better because it is regulated better.
With a single standard and mandatory coverage, you can rely on your cell.
I live in a poor cell service area. Which carrier you should get is a matter of constant debate, because none of them are good and whose signal is best depends on the weather.
The proliferation of standards makes each company dependent on questionable business practices to survive.

It is much better because most of the world's advanced societies are more densely populated than in the US. The US is a big place where many of us like to live away from the cities.
Another reason is because in many places cell phone service is the only communication service that works.
