CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?
"World Cup time is almost here -- but can your cell carrier handle it? Beginning Friday, millions of sports fans in the United States and around the world will be using their wireless mobile devices -- smartphones, iPads and every kind of cell phone -- to catch an amazing month of soccer (or football, depending where you live). According to The Nielsen Company, 23 percent of U.S. soccer fans plan to follow the World Cup via mobile. Also, U.S. soccer fans who reported being less likely to watch live TV broadcasts of World Cup games are especially likely to use mobile devices to follow the games live. If a large contingent of mobile customers suddenly develops a huge appetite for mobile video, that can overload the network and cause problems for all mobile network users. Mobile video doesn't travel along a separate network."
