LTE is now available to more smartphone users than ever before. Is all this high speed data driving us to consume great and great amounts over cellular connections? Some new statistics are out for Android data use, broken down by age group, that show what the average American data consumption looks like.
In some news that would make the cellular network happy, we seem to be going easy on their towers, and pulling-down the vast majority of our data over WiFi. Users in the 25-34 age group seem to be taking the most advantage of WiFi networks, but even much older Android users are pulling most of their data down by WiFi.
Actual cellular consumption is remarkably consistent across age groups, only differing by a few hundred megabytes. The youngest users are the only group to consistently use over a gigabyte of cellular data each month, while the oldest hit about three-quarters of that figure.
How do you fit in with these figures? Are you a data junkie that’s going through something like an order of magnitude more than these numbers, or is your use even more conservative? Let us know in the comments below.
