On the contrary, the entire industry is moving in the opposite direction from what you are thinking. Increased bandwith, higher data intensive applications, faster speeds, etc. The consumer is demanding it, and with the dollar to be made, you can bet they won't be cracking down, but rather cracking it wide open.

Hope that is reality. On the other hand, programmers will always find applications to exhaust whatever bandwidth the network can throw at them.

Re: Am I supposed to be afraid of RIM?

Well, decent quality video conferencing might be the solution to the excessive bandwidth. :smileywink: Now, only if they would just decide to put front cameras on these little wonders.

Give kudos if somebody helps you, also mark accepted if it solves your problem. Search first, then post. Please respect RFC-1855 when posting on forums.

bandwidth is a real problem that some carriers like AT&T did not forecast (lame people !). of course, the most intensive bandwidth applications are streaming applications like YouTube for video, and Pandora / Deezer / I heart radio for radio.

 

usually people tend to go to the best network, meaning the network with good coverage and big bandwidth. To this day there is just one contradictory example, it's the iPhone and its only available carrier in NYC : AT&T. It's a situation that has no special reason to persist in middle-term basis.

 

For the recollection, the cellular placement of 3G cells in NYC for the AT&T network is scandalously sparse (3 times less than the CDMA radio antennas from Verizon).

 

On the other hand, RIM is focusing not only on 3G but also on E-EDGE which is using the EDGE cells fur with higher bandwidth. This can be used in conjunction with 3G so you can use E-EDGE for regular transfers like voice & regular data (push emails & mms) and leave 3G for blazing speed apps like browser & streaming.
