Default How much data do you use

I live in a rural area and using a hotspot is the only way for me to get online unless I went with Hughes net which I don't want.

I used about 32 gig last month and probably will this month.

Verizon throttles me down whether the is conjestion or not in my area so about midway through the month, it slows down.

What is your usage.

With comcrap, pretty much unlimited, if there is a threshold, I've never hit it.
Phone (2) with T-Mobile, never hit the threshold either.

Comcrap here, tried streaming the LRm set and with the short time streaming at bedtime in the back room, the total would frequently exceed a TERRORBYTE....IF it was just ME no sweat, maybe 1/2 that.....as it is, I used comcrap's tuner in the living room.....pay 123.00 a month.....

300-400 GB/mo on Comcast. We watch a lot of Netflix & Prime video in the evenings, which I'd guess accounts for most of that.

Same. Don't know if my ISP shows usage on the bill. I just log in on the first of the month and pay it.

On my cell phone, I might use 2Gigs per month.

Before work frkm home Iím over a tb of data, so instead of paying for $50 monthly fee for unlimited we added AT&T to my Xfinity and load balance between the two connections. I have no real idea how much data Iím using now with both of us working from home, but itís well over a TB.


For cell phone data I was on an unlimited plan before covid but down to an 8gb plan currently.

I don't own a smart phone so I use zero data. My internet comes over AT&T's wire.
Yes I am a total troglodyte and I fart in all of your general directions!
