    My wife and I average between 3 to 10GB.

    We have unlimited. In the past it was not uncommon for us to be north of 20+ GBs.

    When I had unlimited and Android, 40+ gigs

    Now with my iPhone 6 and 6S, less than 5 gigs. I do miss the tethering though (TMO)

    Here's what got so far and I have 10 days left in my cycle. I have unlimited, stream Apple Music and commute 3 hours 5 days a week.

    I gladly pay through the nose for my UD. Can't imagine life without it. image.png

    I don't turn on wifi... which has increased my battery efficiency. Plus... most public wifi my phone would connect to isn't great... and I end up turning it off anyway. I average 30 to 40gb, but since NCAA sports starts (especially basketball) my data usage goes up a bit more. Here is my usage the last few months... including today.

    Unlimited data plan here. I think I hardly use about 100 MB per month.

    I average around 5GB/month. My mom averages less than 1GB on my plan. We're on AT&T 15GB mobile share plan.

    3-5 gigs in a normal month. Sometimes I have to thether a lot for work, or my crappy uverse internet will get flaky on me and I'll go closer to 10. My wife and I share 15.

    Usually around 10GB, although I hit 250GB on Verizon's unlimited data plan last month. Since you're obviously wondering why so much, I downloaded my entire steam library to my laptop at a hotel.

    Since I was upgrading phones I looked at my usage for the past year and was surprised that the biggest month was only about 350MB. I've had the unlimited plan since 2007 and never really thought about data use. But with the $5 increase in the unlimited plan it no longer makes sense for me. I retired a few years ago and don't use the phone away from home as much now. So I switched to the 2gb plan. :)

    Usually around 10GB due to a lot of traveling. This month I'm just shy of 5GB thanks to Wi-Fi at home and the office.

    Almost everywhere has wifi. So I leave my wifi turned on all the time. Which means my data plan only gets used on long drives.

    So on average, I use about 50 MB per month or less on my data plan. Which is fine. My plan only comes with 300 MB of data per month.
