90% of mobile data eaten by TINY, GREEDY super-user HOTSPOTS

Re: Self reinforcing low usage

Absolutely right.

This phone is a shiny one with 20Gb a month of 4g data. How does 99%+ of the mobile data* get used? Over the crappy 2g network, patchy coverage 3g or through my own femtocell at home!

(We actually gave up on the crappy ADSL and that is now pretty much devoted to running the femtocell, as it just about has enough bandwidth to cope if nothing else is on it, as we need mobile phone signal in the house. Work, you know?)

*that's by time, not bits. Once where there is 4g signal I can download more stuff in ten minutes than in a week with barely a phone signal.
