Mobile traffic in the home estimated at 40 per cent

Mobile traffic generated in the home environment was estimated at 40 per cent last year, according to a new report from Informa Telecoms & Media. 

The report claims that by 2013 this traffic is expected to reach an overwhelming 58 per cent. The market research firm expects femtocell deployment to help operators offload up to eight per cent of total mobile traffic to fixed networks via end-user broadband lines. "While mobile operators continue to develop their own services and strategies around applications such as music, games, TV and video, there was a realization during 2007 that a far greater opportunity exists in providing unrestricted broadband access to the Internet," said Malik Saadi, principal analyst at Informa.
