Nielsen report shows a 155% increase in smartphone data usage by the heaviest data hounds
So which platform spawns the biggest consumers of data? The Android OS is the answer with the average user burning up 582MB per month. The report from Nielsen almost confirms that the carriers are on target by offering 5GB of data before throttling down the speed of data downloads. And after all, like the carrier's have been saying, we are talking about only the top 1% of users.
If data consumption continues at the current pace, the big problem will start to occur next year when the top 1% of data users averages more than 5GB of monthly data use. You average users will still have nothing to worry about for some time yet.
