Ancient Hisotry

About 2 years ago around when Service Pack 2 for Exchange was coming about I was shown some documentation around the Windows Mobile architecture for Direct Push. One thing stood out and one that I found amazing was the amount of Data consumed by a Windows Mobile device just to keep the connection alive. 2 years ago it was around the 2c per kilobyte figure and having Exchange Active Sync enabled on the devices over a Month would rack up an aproximate bill of 15mb! @ the before mention price equals $50.00 without any email! This astounded me as Blackberry on the lowest plan only needed 1mb of Data at the time in Australia.

How is it that one solution without email needs 15 times the amount of data than a solution with email?

It makes me wonder where else the fat is going.
