2015) Smartphone data usage : downlink and uplink asymmetry. Electronic Letters, 52 (3). pp. 243-245. Permanent WRAP URL: Mobile phone usage has changed significantly over the past few years and smartphone data usage is still not well understood on a statistically significant scale. This Letter analyses 2.1 million smartphone usage data values and explore the current wireless downlink-uplink demand asymmetry for different time periods and across different radio access networks. The current data
