Back in July, DNA/Elisa of Finland reported that their average user consumes 5 GB of data per month.
Personally I don’t do a lot of video streaming while I’m on LTE so my current data consumption on my smartphone is around 1.5 GB a month these days, so you can imagine how much streaming must be going on in Finland.
Even more seems to have been used in August during the Olympics. MobileEuorpe reports an exceptional DNA/Elisa mobile data use of 13 GB per user last month. That makes me wonder how networks are coping!? According to the picture in the first link, Swedish users are also consuming quite a lot of mobile data but nowhere near users in Finland. And still, even though the network I used in Finland had 50 MHz of LTE on air, speeds during evening hours were down from 40 Mbit/s during the daytime (my UE was not CA capable…) down to single digits in the evening.
