97% of Three's network traffic is data, not chat
Are you on Three? What? Do you want a medal or something? Anyway, if you are, chances are you don't ever ring anyone. Ever.
Why? Well, the company has revealed that ninety-seven per cent of the traffic carried on their network is data.
Of course, this data carrying is something that Three have touted since they founded, and seeing as they offer bulkier data deals that other providers, it's hardly surprising, eh? Also, they flog a lot of USB modems which provide data.
They say: "Since June last year and September this year (just 14 months) we’ve seen a 427% increase in data usage on Three for smartphone customers. Downloading apps, streaming movies, getting around town with Google Maps, even checking in on Facebook – it all adds up, and you’re doing it now more than ever."
Now, who fancies telling them about the spectrum shortage that's been forecast?
