Follow up to LTE Efficiency, US Operators’ 3G Data Efficiency Not Awesome

Posted · Add Comment

 Just for consistency, want to point out that US operators ATT and VZW have not fully perfected 3G data, yet, either. I threw together a chart to show the efficiency just for the sake of being informed…

So there you have it. The best 3G typically seen is about 33% efficient and that’s drastically better than 2 years ago and so now they deploy 4G. The whole case of data vs voice is upside down from a business standpoint. We need to get the operators to 40-50% to make end users and operators happy else we get stuck with bandwidth caps and high rates forever…
