Verizon and AT&T have both been on the record claiming that the average user typically consumes between 1GB and 2GB of data per month and now T-Mobile is confirming the same. The carrier said in a recent Usage Trends report that its subscribers are consuming 146 times more data than five years ago and that its HSPA+ 42Mbps network is now offering 100 times the data speeds of earlier wireless networks. The average T-Mobile consumer downloaded just 25MB of data per month in 2009, 133MB of data per month in 2010, 433MB of data per month last year and, now, customers on its HSPA+ 42Mbps network consume an average of 1.3GB.

The carrier also said that 50% of its smartphone customers on a contract are using a 4G-enabled device and that its HSPA+ 32Mbps network is now available in 185 markets and to 184 million pops.
