These ISPs were also asked to report, for the three months ended 30 June 2013, the volume of downloads from subscribers with internet access connections via a mobile handset.

Data reported by ISPs for the volume of data downloaded via mobile handsets may only include revenue generating downloads, and not monthly data allowances, or downloads that don't contribute to data download allowances.

The volume of data downloaded via mobile handsets for the three months ended 30 June 2013 was 19,636 Terabytes, a 43% increase from the three months ended 31 December 2012.

For the 19.6 million mobile handset subscribers, this equates to 0.3 GB of data downloaded per subscriber per month.
