Share |According to Validas, a company that has been collected 20,000 cell phone bills since January this year, the average data consumption for non-Blackberry Verizon smartphones was 421MB per month. AT&T customers solely using the iPhone consume 338MB per month. And remember when iPhone users complained when AT&T recently put a 2GB data cap on its new contracts, only 1.6 percent of iPhone users used that much bandwidth according to Validas' data, compared to 4 percent of Verizon smartphone users.
But this whole report leads to another big can of worms circling around the mobile phone world. Apple's iPhone heading over to Verizon.
Even though we see these numbers and that it seems Verizon can handle more bandwidth and data traffic that AT&T's iPhone users, could Verizon's network handle the proccesing power and data needed to run all the apps and functions of the iphone? No offense to the android phones, which I have come to appreciate, but they don't have the same user experience and network needs as an iPhone user. Similar, but very different. Is Verizon really ready to take the challenge the iPhone presents? That's a question directed at the media outlets claiming that the iPhone is going to Verizon.
