Is Your Choice Of Mobile Network Plan Good Enough? An Analysis Of Data Usage Of Mobile Applications On 4G Network
We analyze the data usage of mobile applications in the fourth generation mobile telecommunications technology
(4G) to capture the behavior of network-usage patterns. The information is collected from volunteers in Thailand with
various mobile Internet plan. Our goal is to assess whether the plans are suitable for their usage behavior or not. Our study
shows that most people only use their mobile devices for social network. In addition, their usage patterns are not suitable
with their mobile network plan. Most of them exceed the maximum speed provided by the Fair Usage Policy. This suggests
that telecom operator should offer an appropriate plan for this group of user.
