Mobile Data Consumption To Reach 1GB per day

As smartphone ownership grows, faster 4G LTE networks go live and apps made for high-speed data arrive on our phones — the average amount of data used will jump.

Today, the average smartphone users chugs through just 15MB of data a day, but by 2020, the average user could be plowing through 1GB of data per day — that’s half of what Verizon, AT&T and others give you for a month on new data plans. This is just one of the reasons we are worried about tiered data plans with low limits.

Nokia Siemens Networks has put together this infographic, which takes a look at the mobile broadband trends. It’s no surprise that mobile data usage will grow in the coming years, but you might be surprised to see voice calling drop to .3% of smartphone usage by 2015.

Video calling will be more popular than voice calling, but not by much. If Nokia is right, video consumption will be the major smartphone use. Given this focus on multimedia, Android better get busy catching up to iOS on support for watching TV, Movies and more. ( source :Gottabemobile
