Mobile phone networks were traditionally voice and SMS messaging networks which made them easy to quantify and model. More recently with the advent of broadband data connections and smart phones, mobile phone networks are being used for a wide range of purposes using ever more bandwidth. This paper utilises data provided by an Irish operator to provide an initial perspective on the current uses of mobile phone networks as a within Ireland. This work serves as a precursor to the development of a quantitative model of existing behaviour which in turn will help predict future requirements.
