    Demand for Android Phones Saturating Networks, "Need More Input!"


    With the boom of Android based phones globally, soon cellphones may overtake personal computers as the most-used tool for browsing the web. A telecom network technology firm called Arieso recently performed a study, and according to their Chief Technology Officer Michael Flanagan, "Smartphone subscriptions are rising and so too is subscriber appetite for mobile data. It's a trend that's set to continue." This story from Reuters.com indicates that most of the wireless network providers are experiencing rapidly congesting networks. Most of them won't publicly admit it, but demand has risen too quickly, and free Android software seems to be the prime reason. I guess Android users crave "input" more than anyone else.

    I've not noticed any degradation. I installed a new rom Saturday and my phone is faster than ever.

    VZW's network was knocked off line a couple days ago for hours. I NEVER recall that ever happening. No idea what caused it but it's never happened since I've been a customer (7 years)

    Three years ago VZW was down in my area for about six hours due to a construction firm cutting a major connection cable at the tower which is located at the top of a mountain.

    Its like this....

    If the iPhone was available like Android phones, this would been a story back in 2008 too..

    The browsing experience is better on Android and the iPhone. The user experience is better on Android and iPhone. Like me, I had an Omnia 1, Win Mo. I never used the web on my Omnia like I do my Droid 1 and X. It was a bad experience with me and resistive screens, back then not too good zooming features.

    When the experience is better, ppl are naturally gonna use it more.
    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

    I would guess my widgets are passively using a lot more data than I would otherwise. Still do most of my browsing and posting on the laptop. But I do find myself reading a bit of news here and there on the Droid because it's so convenient when you have a minute on the go.

    I use mine for browsing mostly while sitting on the toilet. The more ruffage or chilli I eat, the more bandwidth I consume. No conspiracy here folks. Just eat more cheese and we will all see faster speeds on the network.
