    How much wireless data do you consume monthly?

    How much wireless data do you consume monthly? Mobile wireless, not WiFi or wired internet. (Actually consume, not how much your plan allows.) Per wireless device, per person, for each device you own with wireless access.

    And what applications are the major users of your data consumption?

    100-150 GB and about 5GB out of my 10GB of Hotspot allotment. I'm on AT&T and most of my usage is on YouTube, YouTube TV and Speedtests. They're so fast here, I usually break 100 down daily.

    Last month it was about 250MBs, but the majority of that was Speedtest. This month (without using Speedtest) it will probably be about 75 to 100 MBs -- that's why I dropped down to a 150MB a month allotment.

    If you're just talking phones, about 4 GB - Chrome, TV Listings, email, Facebook, Google Play Store, Words with Friends, and a few others.

    About 250mb a month. Just means I spend less than others. Prefer doing things on my laptop or desktop.

    Between 12GB and 16gb a month.

    We got rid of our slower than a dead turtle AT&T DSL last May and have been tethering my Mom's cellular data since then.
    She has unlimited with the first 6GB LTE.
    Until yesterday I also had 3GB of LTE from my Net10 to use. I would use all of it plus a few more GBs of the throttled 2G after the LTE was used up.

    What I'd use it for.. Basically everything I used to use our DSL on.

    I don't stream movies or TV shows.
    Occasionally I would watch stuff on YouTube. Music videos and such.

    DSL generally has higher caps. In AT&T's case it is 150GB. If speeds where at least 1.5mbps I would probably keep that than going totally to wireless. I had CenturyLink DSL which can give my address up to 100mbps. The only thing about going totally wireless is caps. Wireline generally gives much higher caps (or none at all) over wireless. Unless it is fixed wireless, but that is taking so long to roll out.

    They kept jacking up the price every few months and the speed was far less than 1.5mpbs. Running speed tests it was always in the .67mpbs range.
    We never even got close to using the allotted 150GB listed on the plan.
    $45 a month for that was just ridiculous.

    Throttled 2G seems faster or at least comparable.

    I've got Charter (Spectrum) and it costs us $59 (plus tax and fees) a month. But there's eight of us (my six kids and my wife and I) in our household -- and there are sometimes all eight of us are on the Internet simultaneously. More often some of us will be watching a Movie or TV show downstairs on Netflix -- while some of the kids will be watching a cartoon upstairs -- while another kid will be on YouTube and another couple of them are playing some kind of online game while Skyping to their cousins. Meanwhile I could be watching the MLB baseball game of the day, while talking to my brother and my dad (free) on CallCentric VoIP. There's simply no way it would pay for us to go wireless in our situation. Our speed is 60 Mega whatevers -- we could go up to 100 M... but there's no reason. As far as I know there's no data cap.

    OK, the question should be tied to the little nugget - do you have other Internet sources (WiFi) at home or at work.

    When I had Internet in both places I was using 0.5GB /month.
    Now I don't have WiFi at work anymore, so my usage is around 1-1.5GB. But I don't watch YouTube at work or in my car.
    My family plan is 12GB (3 person) and we are using around 5Gb monthly.

    For my home Internet I have FIOS 100/100Mbps and that uses some 100-200GB monthly (Netflix, Amazon Prime, MS updates). have three routers around the house, all dual-band (5GHz is the way to go to avoid neighbors' interference in the 2.4GHz band)

    What service is your mom's phone data on with the unlimited 6GB LTE? And what is her cost monthly?

    100 - 300 MB / month. Wife = 400 - 800MB/month We have Wifi @ home / work. We live 1.5 - 2.0 miles from our respective

    jobs, so minimal travel data usage.
