Currently the status-app uses a large amount of bandwidth #9081 . This is likely due to how whisper works https://discuss.status.im/t/fixing-whisper-for-great-profit/1419 .
A potential solution has already been identified in the discuss post above, where a new type of nodes (waku-nodes), should be implemented which will drop the usage of bloom filters and instead use topics directly.
In the scope of this task there should be an option for the app to optionally use this waku nodes, while preserving the current functionalities of the app (real time messaging + offline messaging).
Bandwidth measurements should also be performed to quantify the improvements over whisper, ideally through automated testing.
Currently blocked by either nim or status-go integration of waku-nodes. status-im/status-go#1683
