1. A mobile device which promotes or demotes a radio state based on an application accessed or installed thereon, the mobile device comprising:

  • a radio;

    a processor;

    a memory unit having instructions stored thereon which when executed by the processor, causes the radio to transition between a lower powered state and a higher powered state based on at least;

    a determination of whether the application transmits background or foreground data over a wireless network,wherein the memory unit further has instructions stored thereon which when executed by the processor, causes the mobile device to;

    monitor the mobile device and the application while the radio is in the lower-powered state;

    determine, based on the monitored mobile device and application, whether rate-limiting data transmission from the mobile device would avoid causing the radio to transition to the higher powered state; and

    in response to determining that rate-limiting data transmission from the mobile device would avoid causing the radio to transition to the higher powered state, transmit data through a rate-limited proxy configured to limit at least one of a speed of transmission of the data and a buffer size.
