|Are Consumers Offloading Cellular Data in the Wrong Direction?|
Sophisticated phone users know that WiFi only phones and devices are best and use the 3G and 4G networks only with they have to. It is now possible to easily travel in New Zealand, Europe and many other countries around the world without ever using a 2G or 3G network. Making phone calls on WiFi with VoIP is very easy and accessing your data over WiFi is even easier.
Mobile consumers users should be offloading data TO 3G when WiFi is not available and not the other way around. Why are wireless carriers AT&T and Verizon getting away with convincing their customers to offload their cellular 3G data they cannot handle without any compensation of subsidy. Lets face it the carriers are starting to hit a wall with the amount of data capacity they can provide on their networks. The wireless carriers only solution is to start imposing data caps to encourage their own customers to use their service less while charging you more. This doesn't make any sense and the reason a WiFi revolution is upon us and consumers need to start getting smart about where, when and why they access and use 3G and 4G networks. Consumers are fed up with buying 3G and 4G devices that only work some of the time and would prefer to use more cost effective WiFi only iPads whenever possible. WiFi only iPads are selling more than 3G and there is a good reason why.
