How much Data are you using per month?


I am trying to figure out three things. An average of how much data everyone uses per month, a low end of how little data is used, and a high end of how much data can be used? I am not interested in your methods of acquiring data. I am just interested in how much you use as a whole. This includes both work data usage and your personal data usage.


Very generic question. I’ve used between 3GB and 20GB, depending on what you do, but I know you’re not interested in those details. :wink:

At home (our wifi) monthly cap is 300gb, but we (a family of 4) only use about 230gb /m on average - this includes our Netflix, Spotify, Youtube, etc.
Left over data gets carried over to the next month.

I rarely buy mobile data.

It depends on the work you are doing and amount of time spent online for entertainment like Netflix, Hulu etc.
On an average, I use about 1.8-2.2 GB data every day.

I don’t split work/personal. The lowest data I can manage is about 4 gb/month, with working/entertainment done on free/home wifi. I’m on a 10 gb/month plan because some months spike/wifi is down. When actively traveling, without much wifi, I hit that 10 gb within 5 days! If super remote, where wifi is unreliable and a laptop needs to tether off a phone - easily hitting the 30 gb/month mark. I find that having a wifi connection in the place you sleep exponentially reduces data usage.

Fun fact, places where no data exists & no work ever got done on data: Jordan and Cuba.
