Poll started 14 January 2020
With the growing use of social networks, streaming services, gaming and more all done on mobiles, we wanted to see how much data you crunch in a month.

How much data (via a 3G, 4G or 5G signal, not Wi-Fi) do you USE in a typical month? If unsure, check your data usage settings or your mobile bill.

Did you vote? Are you surprised at the results so far? Have your say below.

If you haven't already, join the forum to reply.

Thanks! :)

    Yes, you told us that back in 2013 :)

    What is your point?

    Apps are just programmes. Wee icons on the phone that take you direct to the programme. You know like on your Windows PC, you click on the word icon and word opens? Its just the same.

    Smartphones are just hand held computers that also allow you to make phone calls. You decide what apps you want on it to make it function the way you want
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    I keep mobile data turned off on my phone and only turn it on when I need it because there's no available wifi to piggy back on to. Never used more than 1Gb even with a month away in Europe last year.
    Also have a data measuring app to keep track of what I've used each month.

    Use free WiFi where available, so no need for loads of data.

    Not sure.  When I used to buy it by the GB, the phone would burn through it sometimes, presumably on updates or cloud storage.  Moved to unlimited data and no more stress.

    Or perhaps they are people who have better things to do with their time than to use their mobiles incessantly?
