115MB for March, but using gConnect 3g instead of Vodacom.

The only reason its that high is because I was in hospital for 2 days, usually it does not exceed 50mb because I use my ADSL/Wifi.

Apple iPhone devices leading the smartphone pack at around 112MB of data/user/month.
That seems very low for an iPhone - doesn't people know how to use their devices or what?

Let me get this straight, people still use networks for data?
What's the matter, too dumb to setup wifi?
Actually some of us use WiFi the other way around. Don't like to carry my ADSL line to the beach oh wait I can't.

Where there is no ADSL, there is no need to be online.

Tell that to 90% of the farmers, or even townships not to even mention people that rent and don't want to pay installation costs for phone lines for someone elses property.

It's people like you that keeps us in the dark ages.

I think 2GB is the prime number for mobile data usage, you can youtube, and dl apps, browse fairly properly without having to worry too much about data, the 75mb i have per month is ONLY for fb and gmail, i synch everything else when im at home/varsity on wifi. otherwise i would easily chow 1gig a month

and the data prices is still way to expensive :sick:
drop the prices and the usage will increase :rolleyes:
What's the point? At lower prices but higher usage who stands to lose? The service providers or the customers? Go figure!
