To be precise, the article mentions that T-Mobile turns off the last dial-up-access for WAP. The WAP gateway, as I read it, stays in place. What's gone is the connection method ("dialing in"). They want their users to use "WAP over GPRS", i.e. the "always-on" connection that is used by all modern phones.
Re. the post - I am surprised to see that someone has that much solid traffic for a mobile channel that he sees significant revenue from Adsense for that. So significant, in fact, that he can see a significant decrease in earnings ("half of what I used to get 4 days back").
My questions here are:
1) Which traffic/revenue levels are we talking about? 2) How long has this mobile service been in place? 3) How solid was your revenue prior to this drop? 4) Which target audience visits your mobile site? 5) Which values were compared here? Daily value vs. all-time high? Daily value vs. moving average? Daily value vs. daily value?
our adsense mobile revenues have been stable for the past few month, however most money we make is when europe wakes up. we have 120,000 mobile users in indonesia that connect to our wap site and that run our mobile apps on their phone but those revenues is very small compared to what we get paid on european or us traffic from Adsense Mobile.
