    Study Indicates 90% of All Data Used by Just 10% of Users


    According to research performed for traffic management firm, ByteMobile, 90% of all data traffic on mobile networks is being used by only 10% of those networks users. Data carriers world-wide have been concerned about the strain on their existing networks. They have been expanding and upgrading; however, some analysts predict that even new 4G networks like Verizon's LTE could be saturated very quickly with data hungry users outstripping the pace at which the network infrastructure is enhanced. Luckily for us, Bytemobile had this to say,
    ...in 2011 “operators will add ‘smart capacity’ solutions to better utilise capacity for rising traffic demand. These solutions combine caching, content filtering, policy enforcement, access control, and capacity control points to create smarter networks for managing existing capacity.”
    Let's hope its enough!

    Sounds like major throttling to me.

    ....Until now... Thunderbolt owner since 3/31/11.

    Sense 3.0 or AOSP... <- my ongoing debate.

    I would like to know the ratio of those on the networks who actually have smartphones to those who don't. To know how many users also have a device that's worthy of traffic usage, is alot more worthy then just stating statistics of the nature in the article. Or if all they did was use those with smartphones, doesn't seem to indicate.
    Resistance is futile.

    Remember that you have to take into account that 85% of all statistics are made up on the spot

    Given the recent Net Neutrality outrage, I was thinking the same thing. The "content filtering" in particular leaves me feeling uneasy.

    Well Bytemobile isn't working for Verizon so let's hope they don't follow suit.

    This isn't surprising. I remember reading a similar stat for regular internet usage as well. You get the common person who browses, checks email, and downloads a few songs, and then you get the power user who is constantly downloading 24/7 off of usenet and torrents. Same goes for mobile, just replace torrents with tethering.
