    So, I coudnt find a thread like that.

    I am sure there is many ways of finding out about your data usage.

    On my main PC, according to my stats, I use about 5gb on average per day.
    On my phone, I use about 400mb per day.

    (3ds, wiiU, etc. I cant really tell lol. I could go into my router settings to find an accurate number, but I am ok knowing my PC and phone only :) )

    No idea about PC. I use ~1GB of data monthly on my phone, a little more when on Wifi.

    On mobile, out of a 20GB data plan, I use about 12GB per month over 3 lines (it's shared).

    At home, I generally use around 120GB per month. Sometimes more. Unlimited data plan.

    Between constant VoIP calls, streaming Netflix, periodic updates across multiple systems (OS, app and steam updates), downloading various games, music and videos... We tend to use a lot of data.

    I guess because I use youtube on the go I use up a lot of data.

    We do have 2 more computers and tablets at home that are constantly being used. I gotta find out exact data usage in my router settings :P probably going to blow my mind away.

    Yeah, streaming anything is going to use up a lot of bandwidth, so chance are if you don't have an unlimited plan, you probably won't stream that way.

    Is it TV, DVD or game season? If so a lot. Would not be surprised to top a TB in a month if I went for it -- I have never had much storage though so that is usually the limiting factor. When it is not TV, game or DVD season (which does mean April through about early September) then that drops quite a bit but still up in the 100 or so gigs.

    I am too cool to have a mobile phone so 0 there.

    Hmm, maybe 200 MB a month on average on my phone 4G, I have 1 GB but I'm almost always connected to a wifi and I've set apps to only update over wifi so I never use the whole GB.
    On my home wifi my router says I've used 214.25 GB in the past 30 days.

    ~1GB/month on mobile data, since that is actually the data cap for high speed data on my plan. I usually only listen to music stored on my phone, and only use data for messaging and reddit. Most of the time, I am somewhere that has wifi, so I don't need much.

    On my desktop, it seems that I've used about ~215GB this past month, which amounts to 7GB/day. I've always downloaded a lot of shit, from entire music discographies to several seasons of anime that I planned to watch, or current anime that I am watching, as well as games. Most of the stuff that I download end up sitting somewhere in my hard drive though, as I don't have nearly as much time as I used to in order to binge watch these shows. I suppose streaming YouTube videos in 1080p also counts towards this data usage, so it's likely more of that than downloading, at least for this past month.

    Only thing I can go on, is the usage tracker BT used to give you (can't access anymore if you are on unlimited package). Was averaging 400GB a month according to that.

    On my phone I usually end up using about 5-6GB on average every month. I would use more, but due to the really cheap data plan I've chosen I'm limited to 1Mbit/s download speeds (no data cap though :3).

    As for my desktop I usually always have it streaming/downloading something so in a month I use about 800-900GB of bandwidth.
