  1. 1. Your Average Monthly Data Usage, is



Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

 

I had an idea for a poll, which I did a search for on here, just in case this already had been done here before, though I couldn't find any indication of it, so now I'm creating it.

 

As a former admin of mostly health-related sites, I loved having polls, as it was a great way of getting people to learn more general knowledge of other people's issues, ideas, etc. This poll post here is that I'm hoping will help start a discussion of data usage habits and such, while it also would be interesting to see how much data Sprint gets through its network from people on this site.

BTW, I just now selected the choice for between 15gb - 30gb monthly as my usage. I think this range of usage is going to become the typical average, if it isn't already.

Don't let AJ know that your using that much data per month...lol   :nono:

I am assuming you mean wireless data usage.  My fiancee and I share a 2GB Sprint family share plan and usually use about 1.5GB between the two of us.

I use 10-15GB. Mostly for tethering on AT&T, working on S4GRU at work and on the road. I have a 30GB AT&T family plan that I share. I also have a 4 GB VZW hotspot plan that I use as a backup in places with no AT&T signal, or the AT&T network is too slow.

Yes, wireless data usage typically used, not the plan subscribed to.

I'll go see if I can find how much. I'm positive I use a lot.

From January and back, I was through straight talk.

How in the hell did you use 141 gigs in a month?!...... ????

2 days left in this cycle and I am at 29.98gb.

 

This my heaviest usage month by far - other months are all 17gb or less.

 

Used a lot of tethering over the past 3 weeks (work and kids iPads) + a metric crapload of speed tests.

Download your entire music and movie collection from Google Play? Five times... ????

 

It sure is a lot. My wife and I are usually around 5GB each, but some months can be as high as 10GB each. Just depends how much we're out of the house. At home, we mostly use our wifi connection, even though it's dsl and slower than most everyone else has.

Most likely, performing certain data activities that violate the contractual Ts and Cs.  But that is cool, lol.

That's what I was assuming (what most of us on here would assume). I was hoping it's prompt a further explanation/breakdown from him.

I've been getting into the 6-10 gb range. Streaming netflix and hulu over LTE def doesnt help. That and  I pretty much do not use anything but spotify while there, or in my car. And I don't bother connecting to public wifi in most places because half the time my LTE is faster.

    • Good catch! I meant 115932/119932. Edited my original post I've noticed the same thing lately and have just assumed that they're skipping it now because they're finally able to deploy mmWave small cells.
    • At some point over the weekend, T-Mobile bumped the Omaha metro from 100+40 to 100+90 of n41! That's a pretty large increase from what we had just a few weeks ago when we were sitting at 80+40Mhz. Out of curiosity, tested a site on my way to work and pulled 1.4Gpbs. That's the fastest I've ever gotten on T-Mobile! For those that know Omaha, this was on Dodge street in Midtown so not exactly a quiet area!
    • Did you mean a different site? eNB ID 112039 has been around for years. Streetview even has it with C-band back in 2022 - https://www.google.com/maps/@40.7303042,-73.9610924,3a,24.1y,18.03h,109.66t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1s2ossx06yU56AYOzREdcK-g!2e0!5s20220201T000000!6shttps:%2F%2Fstreetviewpixels-pa.googleapis.com%2Fv1%2Fthumbnail%3Fpanoid%3D2ossx06yU56AYOzREdcK-g%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.share%26w%3D900%26h%3D600%26yaw%3D18.027734930682684%26pitch%3D-19.664180274382204%26thumbfov%3D90!7i16384!8i8192?coh=205410&entry=ttu Meanwhile, Verizon's eNB 84484 in Fort Greene has been updated to include C-band and CBRS, but not mmWave. I've seen this a few times now on updated Verizon sites where it's just the CBRS antenna on its own, not in a shroud and without mmWave. Odd.
    • Drove out into the country today.  Dish stuck to my phone like glue. At least -120 rsrp. Likely only good for phone calls (should have tested.) It then switched to T-Mobile. Getting back on Dish was another issue. I am used to dragging out coverage so I expected a few miles, but had to drive at least 10 miles towards a Dish site. Airplane mode, which worked for Sprint, did nothing. Rebooting did nothing. Finally got it to change over about 2 miles from the site by manually setting the carrier to Dish then it had great reception. Sprint used to have a 15 minute timeout but I did not have the patience today.  Previously I did a speed test on Dish out in the country at the edge of Dish coverage. My speeds were 2g variety. Dish has really overclocked some of these sites. Seen rssp readings in the 50s. Would have called them boomer sites with Sprint but much  more common with Dish.
