According to Internet browser firm Opera, Global mobile data traffic continued to rise in September 2009.

Data traffic through Opera's mobile browser (which packages up to 90 percent of the data to save network bandwidth) rose 8.7 percent in September from August. Packaging data and sending only a small amount through wireless networks, helps as it minimizes congestion in networks.

The noticeable growth in the mobile Internet market was observed since 2007 introduction of Apple's iPhone.

According to telecoms equipment firm Nokia Siemens,

Data traffic on mobile operators' networks rose on average 4.7 times last year, with some operators seeing traffic surge more than 10 times. The data traffic is boosted by the uptake of wireless data cards in laptops. --------
