    I am currently a Sprint Unlimited Data Plan subscriber and looking to switch for various reasons. I was hoping to get some great data to help me choose my data plan, and hopefully this thread will help others in the future. Please list your:

    1) Average GB Usage Per Month
    2) Connection (3G, LTE)
    3) Carrier
    4) Number of Devices
    5) Device Models
    6) Personal and/or Business use
    7) Wi-Fi access (Work, Home)
    8) Preferred Media Consumption (Streaming Movies, TV Shows, Sports Games, Short Videos, or Music)
    9) Tether/Use as Hotspot

    Sorry, but the average usage by anybody else means nothing. You already should know what YOUR usage is.

    Heck on my family plan with 4 iphones, the avg usage over the past 6 months is

    2.1 gb
    600mb
    240mb
    less than 1 mb

    What good does that do for anybody?

    What does my data usage have to do with your or anyone elses data usage?

    1) <200MB
    2) 3G
    3) ATT
    4) 1
    5) 4s
    6) personal
    7) both
    8) all
    9) no.

    I am almost always around wifi so my data consumption over 3 g is small.

    4) 3
    5) 3 iPhone 4 White from Verizon, two 32GB and one 16GB

    9) Not for me but my wife does for her new iPad (WIFI)
