US contracts are a lot more expensive because of lower population density so increased need to spend more on their networks.
True, I should have added, the US networks appear to be operating in tacit collusion to keep prices artificially high. This, together with less intervention from a regulatory body, means prices are higher and choice is more restricted. I take on board the point about population density, but there's no denying the US telecoms requires much stronger regulation.
Anyway, sorry to go off track, this thread is about the Nexus 4. Yay the Nexus 4, I want one.
