Re: Official "How Much Data Do You Use?" thread
For me...the only times I come even close to that is when I'm at my kids mothers apt alot. She has no cable, not even the $50 cable boxes. No internet. When I'm home more...I average less than 1GB a month. I have Wifi and cable with almost every channel. Most cable companies starting giving ppl free wifi routers with their service a few years ago.

I dont know which situation is more normal.....but I cant believe my kids mother situation is. Now that she has an HDTV with a tuner and gets some channels...I believe her use has went down some. My daughter be on facebook and youtube alot. But...if they had home internet.....
Another thing.....she has Sprint now...and dont get good service. I have to use Wifi at my apt, I'm on Verizon. So ppl that have weak data reception...they wont be using that much data in a month. Verizon is alot better at her apt then mine.
I can only get on my phone before and after work and during lunch. And when I'm home...I got home internet and cable. As of right now I'm at 600MB, my cycle starts again on the 25th.
I know its real easy to hit 10GB just using the phone and certain apps...I switched one of my plans to 10GB. But I dont know if its the norm. I mainly switched to that because of my kids mother and kids. I was fine on 4GB. Maybe for folks thats out n about alot 10GB - 15GB is the norm. Cuz I use Netflix, forum apps and browse the web alot when in the streets waiting for ppl, waiting for services, dr appt, etc..
Just looked at her bill..she averages between 1GB - 2.5GB now. And thats all 3G since she cant even get a WiMax signal. So 4G plays a part too. If she could get better 4G I'm sure her usage would be higher.
