Snap now show some pretty cool statistics about your data usage, so I'm curious as to how much data people with the All-you-can-eat Google/YouTube add-on are using.

My roll over is in 2 days time, and I've used 16GB of YouTube data this month.

I don't think my YouTube usage has increased since I got the add-on; I still watch most videos in 320p.  Still, I think it's so worth it for $2.  I'm saving $13/month based on otherwise having to pay for that data.

I imagine other are making much better use of the add-on!

why do you watch vids in 320p? speed?

Most are available in at least 480p now, and many in 720 or 1080.

Common sense is not as common as you think.

I dont have the free youtube addon because im still on the old plans and havent been bothered to change, however i might actually ring up tomorrow to do it :P

But my mate who i convinced to change over to snap, he has used like 10GB of regular data in about a week vs 35GB of free youtube.

This is why he is on snap :) #Winning.

Its very interesting looking from the ISP prospective on this, YouTube accounts for 10-20% of the average data usage for the month per household.

Even higher for Non-leeching households :)

Thanks to a twitter post from Snap pointing out that Google Music data was free with the addon, I have uploaded all my music. This brings my Google/Youtube usage this month to 95.88 GB with 2 days to go.
