Study Of Data Usage In India Leading To The Demand Of ‘Data Tick’
India has one of the largest and fastest growing populations of Inter- net users in the world i.e. 190 million
Indians as of June 2014 and growing rapidly. It is estimated that there will be over 500 million Internet users in India by
2018 thus making India the second largest population of Internet users in the world. The contribution of this paper is
twofold. Firstly we’ll study the data usage trends in India which has led to the demand of keeping a continuous check on the
amount of data being spent while surfing. Secondly, we’ll describe the ‘Data Tick’ application or rather a smarter way to
browse system and its effectiveness in reducing mobile data spending without negatively affecting Web browsing behavior.
