The question often comes up: “How much data do I need on my data plan?”

The answer is easy.  “It depends”.

It really depends on what you do with your smartphone & tablet. 🙂

According to research firm NPD, a sample of 1000 android users shows how much memory people use.

” The overwhelming majority of customers on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon don’t even use 2GB per month, which is below the data caps for all but the stingiest plans from all carriers for the common two-year contracts. And virtually no one uses over 3GB.”

The article in TechNews goes on to say:

“T-Mobile, however, does have the most data-hungry users, according to NPD. Eleven percent of customers use more than 3GB per month, versus 4 percent for AT&T and Sprint and 3 percent for Verizon.”

Of course, you can minimize cell data usage by using wifi whenever available.
