The article discusses how network operators solve the growing data traffic in the U.S. wireless industry. It suggests that the easiest way for operators to control traffic is to start charging people for what they use. According to Jennifer Pigg of Yankee Group, service providers should plan their migration away from legacy TDM and SONET SDH technology.
