top 3 mobile broadband UKMobile operator Three (3) has revealed that almost 2,500 Terabytes (2,500,000GB) of internet data flowed over its Mobile Broadband network in June 2010. Facebook was also named as the most popular service, along with popular social networking games from Zynga.com and its top title, Farmville.

Perhaps surprisingly, visits to Google.com only generated a quarter of the volume of browsing data traffic compared to Facebook.

Charlotte Blanchard, Three’s Director of Internet Services and Products, said:

"We’d expect to see a difference in usage patterns between fixed and mobile Internet access, but the dominance of social gaming shown in these browsing figures is particularly surprising. It shows that, for many, keeping up to date with friends or regular gameplay on the move is now more important than accessing their emails via Hotmail or keeping up to date with the news.

The volumes of data we’re looking at show the importance of Mobile Broadband as an internet access channel – with nearly seven terabytes of Facebook browsing data being generated in just one week – and that doesn’t count the up and download volume."
Top sites from one week in July 2010 (GigaBytes)
1. Facebook.com (7023GB)
2. zynga.com (3584GB)
3. apple.com (2491GB)
4. google.com (1717GB)
5. farmville.com (1680GB)
6. msn.com (947GB)
7. live.com (hotmail) (708GB)
10. youtube.com (678GB)
11. Microsoft.com (657GB)
12. bebo.com (304GB)
The figures differ significantly from those just measuring website visits via fixed line broadband internet (ISP) usage, which see Google UK in first place and do not feature social gaming sites at all.
