2016 was crossover year where over 50% of Internet traffic was driven by mobiles rather than laptops or desktops. The (smart)phone in your pocket is a very powerfull computer with fact connectivity.
The first mobile appeared in 1990 with the aim of providing mobile phone calls. Since then SMS messages were added as a secondary communication medium. The Internet was added in 2001 with the advent of WAP technology. Since then the phones and communications have developed to the modern ubiquitous smartphones of today.
Fast access to the Internet is key to the contemporary mobile phone user. It is needed to support many mobile apps, to deliver fast social media apps and information via the billions of Internet sites. What next?
