T-Mobile HSPA+42 users average 1.3GB data consumption per month

T-Mobile HSPA+42 users average 1.3GB data consumption per month
According to consulting firm Chetan Sharma and T-Mobile USA CTO Neville Ray, it appears that carrier's "4G" HSPA+42 users consume much more data than other T-Mobile smartphone users.

The average 4G user consumes 1.3GB per month, just about double the 760MB used by its total smartphone base, including slower HSPA+21 users.



In the U.S., only 30 percent of smartphone users consume over 1GB of data per month, in general.

Ray noted that 48 percent of overall HSPA+ traffic was due to video accounts like Amazon Instant and Netflix and YouTube.

While technically HSPA+42 is not "real" 4G, speeds are still on par with the low end of Verizon and AT&T's LTE, at around 8Mbps.

    My data consumption is Zero because I just have a cheap phone that doesn't even have a camera.

    I use mobile data and I use quite a bit more than 1.3 gig in a month.

    I also have a phone with H+ access and this seems quite interesting in terms of speed currently not working 100% but once the network is properly setup I'm sure it'll really download very fast.

    Currently only getting speeds around 400kb/s but should be faster than that in a few weeks.

    Tmobile customers are "serious" data/voice users where schmucks using Verizon and Sprint are more often than not..........wannabe's

    ATT may be an exception.

    Using my mobile as a modem, I keep hitting T-Mobile's 10GB cap in under 30 days. I once hit the cap in 5 days, and was on the phone with them, and their "technician" for well over an hour, and they couldn't even figure out how I did that. Oh well, hop to get off these overnight shifts soon, and then maybe I won't keep hitting their 10GB cap.
