Toyota cars to be "friends" with driver

Average employee uses only 13% of monthly wireless data cap

Xigo (Manassas, VA), the cloud-based solution that simplifies managing enterprise telecommunications costs, conducted a research audit on data gleaned from its base of 250,000 phones under advisement for the month of March 2011. Xigo’s research findings indicate that average enterprise mobile phone users with wireless data plans use less than one-sixth of their monthly cap, and users with voice plans use slightly more than two-thirds of their allotted minutes. As a result, enterprises are paying for considerably more data and voice bandwidth than their employees actually need.
