According to ABI Research, Verizon Wireless carried the most mobile data in 2009, followed by Sprint. Customers of these two operators generated 63 percent of the U.S. market’s mobile network data traffic.

“Interestingly AT&T had the most activated data devices in 2009," said ABI Practice Director Dan Shey in a statement. "But it is laptop mobile data connections that have the most impact on operator data traffic levels. Mobile broadband laptop connections to Verizon and Sprint each far exceed AT&T’s laptop connections.”

According to the ABI report, “US Mobile Operator Traffic Profiles: Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile," a high proportion of Sprint’s and Verizon’s laptop connections are to lower-data-consuming business customers as well as expansive 3G coverage areas, which help moderate their network traffic loads across any cell sector.

Even though operator traffic distribution share will change, nearly all operators will see mobile data traffic levels increase eightfold from 2010 through 2014.
