How Much Data Do You Use On the Average Per Month?

The month of March is almost over and I couldn’t help but notice my data usage.

Yes, I have used 361GB so far in March, which is a heady mixture of tethered internet and streaming video content on YouTube/ KissAsian (Korean drama), to name a few.

For those wondering, I currently use nTel’s unlimited data which goes for N10,000 monthly — there are downsides, but I can imagine how much I would have spent if I were to use the limited plans offered by most Telcos.
Now, I know I can’t be the biggest data user in Nigeria by any stretch of the imagination, so, I would like to know how much data you use in a month.

        The way in which you’ve accurately guessed what I do in my spare in very worrying. This shouldn’t be so..

      2. emmaedeh says:

        Haha. I don’t do porn. I stream content a lot. YouTube, and do some heavy downloading. That’s it.

    Currently on 18 GB…..

  5. KingAbsolute says:

    When I had a proper working phone and system, like last year, I use 10-20gb of data per month (not including free or cheaper data bundles which I only download movies and music with).
    Now that am managing gadgets, like this year, I use not more than 3gb per month.

    Hey Tobi great thing you’re doing on here!
    It’d be super awesome of you did a review of all the telecoms offering data in Nigeria.
    I’m currently stuck with Swift and I feel I’m not getting enough value for my money.
    Here are some key points you can include.
    The fastest network.
    Best value for money
    Most Reliable (sometimes I get no reception at all and these could be when I really need to send an important mail or something)
    Best Coverage.
    It’ll be super nice if you could do this and you’d be saving us a lot of headaches really.
    Keep up the good work 👍💪

  18. Darlington says:

    Mine is an average of 500 MB.I use a small phone,so its not that large

  19. Norman says:

    360GB!!! How??? It seems you only stream videos in FHD. Probably got a netflix account. Otherwise i dont really see how i can even use up 10GB a month.
