I have been wanting to say this for ages. Now the cat is out of the bag...

Telecom pump 850GB p/week over CDMA mobile data, up from 200GB a year ago.

What is that data spent on? Only thing I can think of is that streaming TV, as there aint much to mobile web except text and really really small graphics. Not like where doing BitTorrent here....

This is mobile broadband we are talking about here, not WAP.

People stick a data card in the side of their laptops for internet access....... So people could well be torrenting

I meant not just WAP.

I know PDAs and phone are included, just pointing out that people can be downloading stuff will be counted in that figure through use of a data card or i guess hooking their phone up as a modem
