Title: Identification of frequent locations of a wireless communication device

Abstract: A frequent location determination system to identify a location frequented by a wireless communication device comprises a processing system. The processing system is configured to process network usage data for the wireless communication device to identify a cell sector in a wireless communication network that is used by the wireless communication device more than a plurality of other cell sectors in the wireless communication network. The processing system is further configured to process user data transferred by the wireless communication device from the cell sector to identify Global Positioning System (GPS) data, and to process the GPS data to determine a subset of the GPS data that indicates locations in the cell sector. The processing system is further configured to process the subset of the GPS data that indicates the locations in the cell sector to determine a frequent location of the wireless communication device within the cell sector.
