    For those of you that have a 3G iPad, how much monthly data do you use on average?

    I have a £25 p/month plan and I don't use anywhere near that much data. I get 15GB a month and use about 2 or 3GB. BUT, I am glad because it may aswell be unlimited to me and when I am out and about I never have to worry about not having internet. It also help that I am with UK's best provider for 3G coverage.

    I mostly only use 3G while I'm at work, for some quick Facebook checks and MacRumors reading. Rest of the time is WiFi.

    So it looks like the average person that uses 3G and wifi when possible, would be able to get by with a 2Gig plan. I don't do movies or lots of music, just web sites, email, etc.

    That's an awesome report. Is it pulled from your carrier or did an app produce it?

    One thing you'll notice is that you probably won't use anywhere as much data as you use on your iPhone unless you're constantly streaming. I found it hard for me to hit a little over 1gb and i'd consider myself a so-so medium user.

    In the UK, the standard O2 iPad contract gives 1Gb of 3G data plus unlimited btopenzone and thecloud wifi hotspot usage. In London, you're almost always within reach of one of the two wifi services, so mostly 3G is used on trains, in shops, etc. 1Gb is plenty for that.
