I got the following from Prof. Scott Kirkpatrick.

Write a 250-words research project and get access within a week to the largest
ever released mobile phone datasets: datasets based on 2.5 billion records,
calls and text messages exchanged between 5 million anonymous users over 5
Participation rules:

Some more information about this dataset:

The data collection took place in Cote d’Ivoire over a five-month period, from December 2011 to April 2012. The original dataset contains 2.5 billion records, calls and text messages exchanged between 5 million users. The customer identifier was anonymized by Orange Cote d’Ivoire. All subsequent data processing was completed by Orange Labs in Paris.
We will release four datasets in order to offer a large spectrum of possible analyses:
  • Aggregate communication between cell towers;
  • Mobility traces: fine resolution dataset;
  • Mobility traces: coarse resolution dataset;
  • Communication sub-graphs.
