"The amount of data downloaded by mobile handsets jumped from 9.9 terabytes in June 2012 to 19.6 terabytes last June – equivalent to about 300 megabytes of data per subscriber per month."
It also detailed that there are now 19.6 million internet enabled mobile handset and 12.4m fixed line connections in Australia - not bad for a population of 22.68m people.
The bigger picture is obviously we are more connected than ever - and also more addicted to staying connected.
As a side note, I find it kind of crazy that there are still 230,000 people using dial-up internet. I wonder how many of these are holding out for a NBN connection?
Part of me thinks quite a few of these might already have mobile internet enabled device also, but why on earth would you still be paying for dial-up? Maybe the whole email account linked to the ISP trick really has some people think they are locked in?
