Google Android Users Consume Highest Network – Study
Users of Google’s Android phones use a lot of data services when compared to smartphones. Users of Android use a lot more bandwidth than those using other smartphone platforms like Windows, Blackberry, iOS, and Symbian. Additionally, the usage is high enough to choke the wireless network capacity. This was the outcome of an industry study conducted on phones and their network usage. The study was conducted by telecom network technology firm Arieso.
Better cameras and video recorders, and software for editing the footage are said to be the reason behind network usage.

When more could be done, more tends to be done. He added that ‘Smartphone subscriptions are rising and so too is subscriber appetite for mobile data. It’s a trend that’s set to continue.
Experts that have watched the market closely identified that the current boom in network data usage because of the popularity of smartphones is great for the telecom market. However, they have warned that the network might not be able to catch up with the demand for more capacity.
Lance Hiley, VP of market strategy at telecoms network technology provider Cambridge Broadband Networks said
