    Bonus points for proof. Mine is about 7GB... Whenever I go over 5.5 I get throttled.

    About 15GB is the most. Two years ago before Sprint started their network upgrades we averaged around 10GB per month.

    We're on Sprint. Unlimited, no throttling, no need to worry about how many GBs I pull.

    Of course, now with all the upgrading I'm lucky to pull 1GB/month between my wife and I. Been using WiFi a lot just to stay sane.

    Less than 1 GB, assuming you are referring only to cellular data.

    Toronto, Canada.
    Before I had a 6GB promotional plan so I used to hit almost 5.8GB every month but those bastards forced me to change my plan to a more recent plan when I upgraded. I'm limited to 2GB with my plan so I stay under 2 most of the time (10 out of the 12 months I would say [89.1%]).

    In over 3 years of using cellular devices (iPad for 6 months and then iPhones since) I've only gone over 200 mb twice. One time was on vacation. The other was after Hurricane Sandy when the power was out for 4 days. This also includes free T-mobile data on my iPad mini. I just don't use data that much since I'm almost always on wifi.

    About 980MB over cellular, just shy of my 1GB limit. With my Telus plan going over your data limit is a $20-ish charge to bump it up to 2GB. Ripoff, but then again almost any Canadian cell plan is a ripoff by default.

    I'm on Wifi the majority of the time but when at work during a boring shift it doesn't take long to burn through data. 1GB is a very tight limit to have nowadays but I manage. I don't understand why people need to burn through 20+ GB in the run of a month. Do you really need to use your phone THAT much? Or stream Netflix hours a day on your phone?

    Not sure why I didn't get throttled on AT&T. I moved into a new community and there was no broadband provider that month so I had to tether.

    Between 2 and 3 GB. I had some power outages that month, so I had to tether, and I was watching Netflix and downloading updates, etc.

    5GB! 10GB! It makes me laugh. My tariff allows for a whopping 2GB pm and I get throttled at 1.75 GB so all my data if pretty much off away from wifi. Which is all day.
    Waiting till September to get upgrade to a 'hopefully' better tariff

    I have a friend with an unlimited hotspot from AT&T and his bill said 101 gb last month because he uses it as his home wifi. That's a pretty awesome plan to have grandfathered in at 39.99 per month. Working in the industry, I told him to never ever give that up!

    I have unlimited data for iphone and typically use 5-10. A few movies may put me around 15.

    The most I've used is around 15gb. I saw a few weeks ago that someone used over 1tb. I can't even do that on my home internet.

    Around October or November last year I used 17GBs in one month. It was mostly due to iTunes Match (5GB), Watch ESPN (6GB), and Personal Hotspot (2GB).

    Good thing it's unlimited data.

    I use over 100GB each month on my Moto G. Costs me £15 a month which includes 300 minutes and 3000 texts. That's not that much data, just 3 or 4GB a day. I know some people who average around 300GB.

    Barely use mobile data on the iPhone; I just tether it.

    I've used over 7GB last month, from what I presume is a buggy facebook app. that is we (the wife and I) really didn't use our iPhones in such a way that would have accounted for such a high data usage. I had to upgrade from 6GB to 8GB tier with a week to go, and in that one week we used over a gigabyte. I traced the issue to the Facebook app. Hopefully the changes to the accounts and the phone app corrected this.
