The H2 2010 MobileTrends Report reveals that YouTube is responsible for a
tremendous 17% of mobile data bandwidth usage and continues as the single
most significant website for video streaming, accounting for 45% of total
video streaming traffic. The report also shows the continued exponential
growth experienced by social networking applications such as Twitter and
Facebook, which grew by 378% and 267%, respectively, underlining the natural
synergy that exists between social media and the mobile Internet. The use of
VoIP and IM applications also continued to grow rapidly with an 87% increase,
demonstrating their ongoing appeal for subscribers.

This Allot MobileTrends Report also reveals that Google's Android Market
lags far behind Apple's App Store with only 9% of the overall app store
download traffic. However, its rapid 177% growth rate may influence this
balance in the near future.

"Our MobileTrends findings demonstrate that mobile operators must
understand the value that over-the-top applications provide to users rather
than just focus on the amount of bandwidth they consume," said Rami Hadar,
President and CEO of Allot Communications. "As networks move towards
4G/LTE(TM) and convergence, understanding this value is likely to become even
more critical as operators will be expected to provide a more enriched and
personalized experience for their users."

Findings from the Allot MobileTrends Report also include:

    - YouTube remains one of the single most popular mobile
      Internet destinations, accounting for 17% of mobile data bandwidth.

    - P2P and HTTP downloads together represent a significant 30%
      of mobile bandwidth.

    - Apple's App Store is responsible for 89% and Google's
      Android Market is responsible for 9% of overall app store download

    - Skype continues as the undisputed VoIP market leader,
      accounting for 87% of mobile VoIP bandwidth.
