T-Mobile USA has a well-deserved reputation for having some of the highest volume smartphone users on the mobile Internet. Not only does it have the fastest 3G networks and the most liberal data caps in the industry save Sprint, T-Mobile lets you user your phone’s mobile hotspot capabilities on mid-tier plans free of charge, allowing your typical user to actually consume the data he or she pays for. T-Mobile this week revealed just how much that typical smartphone user on its network consumes: 760 MB per month. What’s more subscribers that have its 42 Mbps dual-carrier HSPA+ phones such as the new HTC One S gobble up an astonishing 1.3 GB a month, which proves the obvious: faster networks mean more data used.
