Pac Crest had reported different findings. [View news story]
    On the consumer side, I don't think there is compression taking place. Part of the reason is that much of the data consumed by the general public in not compressible (ie. photos, streaming video/music). I'm not personally, a huge consumer of streaming video or music over my mobile device so my usage didn't increase that much.

  • BlackBerry (BBRY -6.1%) adds to this week's losses following critical reports from National Bank and Wedge Partners.

Wedge says it's receiving signs "U.S. carriers are not optimistic" about Z10 sales, and considers iOS/Android "simply too entrenched" within the country. [View news story]
