By Year 2024, You Will Be Using 21 Gigabyte (GB) of Data Per Month.Â
With the rate at which data zaps these days, it’scertain that sure some us uses up to 10GB per month aside of what we download. The question is how much data will be enough for you in 30 days?
We still have people that rarely finish 3GB data in 30 days, while some consumes that daily. EricsonÂ forecastedÂ that by year 2024, smartphone users would consume more thanÂ 21 gigabyte (GB) of data per month.Â
Meaning the least data youâ€™ll use in year 2024 will be 21GB of dataâ€¦ Perhaps you should be using between 21GB to 60GB of data monthly.
The report says that by 2024, data consumption per month on average would be nearly four times the amount consumed in 2018. The report, in other words, estimated that the amount of monthly mobile data traffic consumed by a smartphone user would rise from 5.6 GigaBytes to 21 gigabyte .
Ericson arrived at this conclusion based on the fact that video streaming behavior is on the rise among smartphone users. video currently stands out as the most significant traffic type consumed by smartphone users, at an average of 60 per cent of total traffic.
This is predicted to grow by 35% annually through 2024 to account for 74% of all mobile data traffic. According to the report, traffic from social networking is also expected to rise â€“ increasing by 24% annually over the next 6 years.
If you are among those who streamÂ Netflix,Â iFlix, Irokotv,Â Instagram tv, StarTimes OnÂ and the rest, then you should be prepared to go for unlimited data plans which by then might be around N20,000 â€“ N25,000 ($55 â€“ $69).
So, how much data do you currently use per month?
