If someone is on a 500MB plan and always uses 2.5GB, the 6GB plan would be a necessity, not a frill.
Exactly... which doesn't make this poll very accurate.

There is nothing inaccurate about gathering raw data. You can interpret it however you like!

Around 20-40MB per month since wherever I go there is WiFi access.

I have been using <100 megs a month as I am very leery about going over like I did with my crappy Bell Novatel U727 USB modem. They billed me $2,200 !!!!!!!!!! for the first month! It was cut back, but not nearly as much as I complained about! I just canceled it.

With Rogers, I have 500 megs on my plan, but was looking at getting that $30 6 gig offer. But it looks like it is gone now. They are offering $80 for 5 gigs! No thanks. I'll leave it as is & hopefully I won't go over my limit. At least they have an easy-to-find report for usage (voice, data, sms) on their site now.

I just checked and have used 65 megs with 20 days to go...

Depends on how you use it. I have 60 gigs on my home plan and am using 30-40 gigs a month now. 6 gigs would be gone in no time for me!

I'm averaging 174 MB per month data usage. Pretty minimal.

Any changes in your usage lately? Are the numbers going up as more apps become available?

True, but the raw data may be useless depending on how it is collected.

What is your criticism regarding the data collection, exactly? I'm not planning on publishing in any science journals!

Over eight thousand people have viewed the thread, which tells me that people are looking for this type of information. As more people vote, the falsified votes become less statistically significant.

Over 80% of the 110 voters in this poll use less than 1GB of data. 45% are in the 100-499MB category, with 0-100MB coming in a distant second place at 19%.

Again, feel free to make any hypotheses. My questions have already been answered.
