A study that’s sure to cause a stir in the mobile community has just hit the web, saying that most users use less than 2GB of data a month. The study was conducted by research firm NPD and was done on mostly Android devices via an app installed on willing volunteers’ smartphones. About 1,000 respondents from multiple networks in the US (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon) were included in the test and the results are overwhelming: most users don’t even hit 2GB in a single month, which means that unlimited data plans are more or less a waste, if you think about it. Of course, this particular study was done in the US, so this doesn’t automatically apply to users in the Philippines. Then again, you guys might want to keep track of how much mobile data you use, and see if you go over 2GB in a month.
