France Telecom outlines mobile offload strategy

In a recent post on Total telecom, France Telecom says that WiFI is the right approach to off-load mobile data traffic. The challanges lies, however, in the available spectrum and in backhaul:  “The majority of smartphones are capable of using WiFi in the 2.4-GHz band. Orange has a 5-GHz band, which could potentially handle 75% of its WiFi requirements, but just 1% of the smartphones on its networks can use that band”, Maloberti said according to Total telecom.
