30 January 2012

According to Reuters, Japan’s NTT DoCoMo is to ask Google to decrease the amount of data its mobile OS consumes.
As the report states, DoCoMo has taken issue with an Android VoIP app that enables free voice communication that assisted in bringing down its service on Wednesday; will also campaign for Google increase the periods between the Android OS’ requests for new data for its apps.
As some Android apps polling for new data every three to five minutes, Android devices “are pulling around ten times as much traffic as a normal mobile phone, increasing the strain on smartphone-intensive mobile operators.”
Android transmits control signals every 28 minutes; Japan’s DoCoMo is asking that Android does that less regularly, to enable the company to offer service to more Android device owners and decrease disruptions on its networks.
DoCoMo intends to cooperate with Google and other mobile operators in asking Android application developers to lower the frequency of control signals, “which could not only anger software creators, it could also have an impact on smartphone users, who invested in Android because of its open nature.”
