Light Reading Survey: 38% of Operators have Policy Management Plans

Debra Baker (picture) reported to Communications Technology on Light Reading's  "Policy Management in the 4G Era" event held during CTIA 2011 last week:

"According to Graham Finnie, [Chief Analyst, Heavy Reading] .. 30 percent of 70 operators polled seven months ago said they had no policy-management plan in place, while 38 percent said they did. However, with the predictions of how much mobile data will be consumed in the next several years, not having a way to monitor and manage usage just seems shortsighted".

See "Live From CTIA: Got DPI?" - here and the short video below (from Light Reading's coverage - here).

"The bottom line is that DPI gives operators the tools to begin charging subscribers for the data they use, and isn’t that the whole idea?"
