The main challenge was to understand the user behaviour of the stc users, the majority of which use a fraction of their assigned bandwidth. Thus, there is a significant potential for cost savings both for stc and their users.

  1. Identify customers, who underutilise their connection and identify cell phone towers which have spare capacity to accommodate the additional traffic
  2. Map customers to cells with sufficient capacity
