‘Alarming’ unlimited data usage: 31.4 GB per month and rising
According to two new reports, the embrace of unlimited data pricing plans in the United States and elsewhere is pushing dramatic increases in the amount of data traveling over operator networks. Indeed, according to NPD, the average U.S. smartphone user now consumes a total of 31.4 GB of data on a monthly basis (a figure that includes both Wi-Fi and cellular consumption). That’s up fully 25% from a year prior.
