By 2024 You Will be Using 21GB of Data Per month

Considering the rate at which data zaps this days, I’m sure some you use up to 10GB per month aside of what you download. The question is how much data will be enough for you in 30 days?

Some of you rarely finish 3GB data in 30 days, while some of you that’s what you use daily. Ericson forecasted that by year 2024, smartphone users would consume more than 21 gigabyte (GB) of data per month.

Meaning the least data you’ll use in year 2024 will be 21GB of data… 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 – increasing by 24% annually over the next 6 years.

You stream Netflix, iFlix, Irokotv, LindaIkejitv, Instagram tv and the rest, then you should be preparing to go for unlimited data plans which by then might be around N20,000 – N25,000 ($55 – $69).

How much data do you currently use per month?

  1. I can’t really say how much I consume per month but should be in region of 15Gb per month. I sub for 9mobile data of N200 1Gb data nearly every three days

  2. Honestly data zapping is on the increase, very annoying and heartbreaking. I try to manage my data but still spend close to 5gb a month

  3. I used that the way it’s comes ni oo
    If it’s free and unlimited I can finish over 100 per month bcos of download and streaming, if na capped na to dey suck it small smal

  4. Instagram is a big data consumer. The less time i spend there, the less data i use. I don’t stream with my regular data but still use at least 3gb a month.

  5. With airtel 1k double data am subscribing 3 or 4 times in a month without much streaming and downloading. That 9 or 12 gig in month. But with ntel I can stream and download anytime and I can consume more than 40 gig in a month.

  6. By 2024, i strongly believe I might be in that position Ericson predicted. A good number of us might, Lord help our pockets by then ?

  7. Have surprised myself as I used up a whooping total of over 250GB a month when Airtel was selling their wifi with unlimited data on it. Now with MTN 1GB for 200NGN I can speculate I eat up a little over 25GB a month easy
