Historic milestone: Mobile data traffic surpasses voice

Mobile data traffic surpasses voice

Historic milestone for mobile industry

Based on Ericsson measurements in live networks

24/7 Internet connection, a necessity in life

Mobile data surpassed voice on a global basis during December of 2009, Ericsson announced today at the CTIA Wireless 2010 convention in Las Vegas. This finding is based on Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) measurements from live networks covering all regions of the world.

Ericsson's findings show that data traffic globally grew 280% during each of the last two years, and is forecast to double annually over the next five years. The crossover occurred at approximately 140,000 Terabytes per month in both voice and data traffic. The data traffic increase is contributing to revenue growth for operators when more and more consumers use data traffic generating devices such as Smartphones and PCs. During the same period, Ericsson measurements show that traffic in 3G networks surpassed that of 2G networks.

Win 7 Pro x64, VM Win XP, Win7 Pro Sandbox, Kubuntu 11

Not surprising. With the amount of data traffic put out by governments, and large to small business in the form of e-mails, document transfers, .pdf files, etc. this was a sure thing.

What amazes me is the amount of it. 140,000 Terabytes data over mobile networks. That is a lot, however you try to think it.

Blocking outbound traffic (data out)
My ISP charges for outbound traffic, even though they dont pay for it. According to them it is to stop people sharing files and stuff illegally. In my case, it's accounting for 10% of my allowance, and I've tried everything I can to stop it. Somehow, people are getting into my network and...
