Public safety/business is narrow.  GMRS/FRS/Marine will not change, as those radios are not separately programmable.  Ham will stay wide for now.

It's true of most repeaters in the the American continent, however, the rest of the world has been narrow band for many years.

Officially, the US is also narrow band. Americans are just reluctant to change.

Same is true with metric measurements.

Use wide on a narrow system and your audio on speech peaks might be distorted. Use narrow on a wide system and you will get good audio quality albeit at a slightly lower level.
