How much data do you use a month?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

And is it enough for your needs?

I currently use (by myself, I live in a flat with 4 other students including my girlfriend) around 500-600GB a month, we have a TB cap. I think it's enough for my needs, I went from 30GB @ $79 a month to this, and it's amazing.

I have totally unlimited so I imagine I used near to a terabyte a month.

It varies. We don't have a data cap but there is a fair usage policy limit of 300GB.

 

Yeah ours is unlimited, but I have a friend at my ISP who informs me that their fair use is 1TB on my plan, so I try to stick under that ;)

Well our ISP is new and does plan to make the data cap unlimited once they have the infrastructure up and running. It's just a temporary data cap for now.

I'm not even sure how to check.

But with Verizon Fios there's "virtually" no cap. I know I use a lot of data though.

I was forced to use a 3G dongle with a 5GB limit (per month) from 2008-2011. Words cannot describe the joy of having unlimited usage. As for how much I actually use, probably about 20-50GB for Steam. Don't know how much in terms of surfing the internet / streaming video, etc. Would set an estimate to 50GB.

I don't really want to know, it's probably up to TB's a month. I have no data-cap and i got a pretty beast connection so it's usually streaming netflix x2, 3 computers and a few phones. (Not that the phones really matters) ^^

I know that last month my router said i had somewhat close to 3TB, but it was a fresh install thing so i had to re-download all my games++^^

I go online a lot so I'm guessing I'm somewhere above 100GB (with unlimited broadband). Someone like me would not be able to cope with SIM cards since they are very slow and only have 500MB-1GB of online data usage.
