And vice-versa. I don't think we'll be seeing any actual data from any
of them any time soon. It should be pointed out that the Cisco study is
a) from a company that has no vested interest in whether data is Wi-Fi
or 3G, since their backbone equipment is necessary in either case, and
b) corroborates data from several other sources as well (and of course
no one has any evidence that the Cisco study is inaccurate).

The least reliable and least scientific study, from a company whose
business it is to sell their services directly to the end users, states
that Verzion smart phones (mostly Android) used 485.0 MB/month, while
AT&T iPhone users used 344.3 MB/month
