Depends on what offers I get in the app, and if it actually works to let me buy them. The couple of gigs for a week for a few bucks one is great when it comes up, otherwise I just slum it on the gig that comes with the $30 pack and listen to music saved on the phone.

500MB is my limit, and it takes a conscious effort to stay under that.  If I had free rein to use it as I wished I would guess around 2GB.

I go through 2.5gb/mth but this is shared with 3 phones and a hotspot, I have instilled a no mobile video or music streaming policy which helps keep the family in line :P


Personally i am using around 1.5GB/mth

I've been on the 2D $19 plan forever so get an extra 500mb bonus making it 1Gb. Invariably run out and use my wife's 'shared' data (she gets a Gb but hardly used any👍) Over the last holidays we managed to use an extra 2Gb (@$20ea) just with browsing, maps and basic email/whatsapp

I have over 800mins rolling (from 90/m) and my wife has none from 300/m (and often uses mine when we're together)

Definitely think they need to vary the plans so that some can sacrifice minutes for data, and some sacrifice data for minutes.

Guess this is unlikely while they have people paying for extra's and banking the bits they never going to use though :(

I have 3.5GB and barely get to 2.5GB most months despite being a very heavy user. The only times I typically get close to 3.5GB is when I'm roaming overseas and using my phone extensively as a hotspot.

In the same boat as many others. On a plan with a 1.25GB limit. I make reasonable efforts to make sure as much data use as possible is over wifi so generally stay under 1GB/mth. Too expensive for me otherwise.

I'm on the road Monday to Friday, and motel/hotel wifi is so hit in miss I almost never connect my tablet or phone to it. Just mobile data. It's often 4G in most places I stay so it's often quicker than wifi too.


That 4.5GB share offer for Voda's $60 plan looks pretty enticing though.
