3G Network Internet Traffic Patterns?

We have the opportunity to provide Internet connectivity to a newly forming 3G cellular provider in a mostly rural area. Our current wholesale ISP customer base is predominantly residential; our current peak traffic period is consistently between 8PM-10PM. Does anyone have traffic info or a graph showing peak times/traffic patterns for pure cellular networks? As you can imagine, we're interested in seeing if the peaks are coincident or not. TIA...

There are a wide range of different cell providers with different customer bases, so this is impossible to answer.

If you aim at "mobile broadband" users, then you'll get the peak in the evening just like your current peak, because it'll be similar users. If you aim at other groups of people, then you'll get different traffic patterns.
