A recent survey of smartphone users in the US and Great Britain asked them to identify whether they blamed the service provider, application or device when they experienced mobile internet problems. They could pick more than one and 79% percent blamed the service provider, 26% felt the application may be at fault and only 15% identified the device as the culprit. This likely won’t come as a surprise to mobile carriers who’ve been struggling to deliver a great user experience in the face of exponential mobile data growth since the introduction and widespread adoption of the iPhone, the many smartphones and tablets that followed, and the explosion of the app ecosystem. So, while new devices and apps may be causing the mobile data congestion problem, which is especially prevalent in metro areas, clearly it’s up to service providers to fix it.
