Re: Signal/Bandwidth is not the issue

"Go to any event, whether it's a huge music festival or a smaller gathering, and you quite often get "perfect" 4G signal and "sod all" data."

Ditto when my job takes me onto a university campus, or a major town centres, especially at lunchtime. Most people seem to be using data constantly these days with Facebook and the like constantly updating or talking to the mothership. It's not that a lot of people are streaming at certain times or places, it's just *everyone* is constantly sipping data so once you reach a critical mass, it all grinds to a halt.
