TT Poll : What is your monthly consumption of mobile data and what do you use it for?

By August 6th, 2016 AT 3:56 PM

Consumer market and usage pattern changes as the technology changes at a very rapid rate. In 2014, Telecomtalk conducted a nation wide survey on Mobile Data usage and also published some good insights on the usage patterns as reported from our readers in the survey.


But today is not yesterday, the growth of data usage on mobile has increased widely with the adoption of 3G/4G LTE technologies. So, as experience changes, usage pattern also changes the way data is consumed on mobile.

A short summary of the insights of the survey conducted in 2014:

  1. Majority of users who adopted 3G and were not very happy with 3G service quality.
  2. Majority of users used mobile data services for IM, Email and for Browsing.
  3. Average usage per user was 1GB per month.
  4. On an average monthly expenditure on data services was around Rs150-250 which was in sync with 1GB data price in the market at that time.
  5. Majority of users used Wi-Fi at their Home/Office.

Not every user is the same and have the same priority and importance for data on the move. So, in order to analyze the usage scenarios now in 2016 we have crafted this poll.

I just hate it when you ppl purposely dont add to the list.
Same thing happened for last survey as well that time also I mentioned it but you authors dont care about it and call your self telecom experts???

Really upset about it.



Just because Jharkhand got separate statehood you want us to refer to it as Bihar-Jharkhand circle, so by your logic we should start calling North East circle as Mizoram-Arunachal Pradesh-Meghalaya-Nagaland-Manipur-Tripura circle? First understand that circles have their names dictated by DoT which decides which states are a part of it, one state may have two circles in it like Maharashtra and Mumbai, West Bengal and Kolkata, and some circles have more than one state in them like Andhra Pradesh circle contains the state of Telangana, Madhya Pradesh circle contains the state of Chhattisgarh, and the same way your Jharkhand state… Read more »

Wonderful reply for a stupid question


Personally you should question TRAI DOT About it, not here. the author already mentioned in the poll as well as some where in the below comments * All circles as as per Govt. Can’t you read it?


Similarly Kolkata is in West Bengal but it’s a different circle. Understand what’s a circle naming is!
