Anybody surprised? Now I kind of understand why AT&T is buckling in NYC from all the iPhones on its network. Consumer Reports just released a study on regular consumer smartphone users showing that Apple iPhones use an average of 273MB/month compared to 54MB/month for BlackBerry users and 150MB/month for other smartphone users. The top 12% of iPhone users use 500MB+ a month and the top 4% use over 1GB of data as you can see below.
The numbers are even crazier if you start digging into BlackBerry users. Over 80% of non-business BlackBerry users use less than 50MB a month. I know I use over 500MB a month on AT&T but I am nowhere near the average. I highly recommend reading the full report on the Consumer Reports blog.
So how much data do you use a month?
