According to an annual report from ByteMobile, the mobile internet solutions company, video continues to dominate as the main source of mobile data traffic. The report found that mobile videos run on average of 5 minutes, but users tend to “snack” in average increments of about 1 minute, regardless of the length of the content they’re watching.
Video was the number one data consumer across all geographies, including the Americas, Asia and Europe.
On iPhone, ByteMobile found that MediaPlayer, Web browser, iTunes and Facebook are the top bandwidth consuming applications. The top five applications on the iPhone consumed 97 percent of all bandwidth on the iPhone network.
As expected, the report found that all is not equal in the land of mobile bandwidth consumption. According to ByteMobile’s metrics, 10 percent of mobile users account for approximately 85 percent of total data consumed.
