See "Alltel Wireless Picks Bytemobile for Web, Video and Gateway Traffic Management" - here.

Parental control seems to gain traction recently - see posts about TalkTalk (UK- here), CSL  (Hong Kong - here), Orange (France - here) and Cellcom (Israel - here) sometimes as a result of regulation and sometime as a paid VAS. See also "Web Filtering Study from Sprouts" - here.
Allied Wireless Communications Corporation serves more than 800,000 subscribers in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Illinois, Ohio, and Idaho which were acquired from Verizon Wireless for $200M  - here.
