German iPhone users consume about 30 times more data than mere mortals, T-Mobile says (via Unstrung). “The average Internet usage for an iPhone customer is more than 100 MBytes. This is 30 times the use for our average contract-based consumer customers,” RenĂ© Obermann, CEO of its parent Deutsche Telekom (NYSE: DT), said, adding T-Mobile had sold 70,000 iPhones with contracts since launch in November. Orange content and services SVP Herve Payan this week told Orange’s French iPhone customers use “eight to 10 times more” data than normal subscribers. O2 UK this week reduced some data tariffs for its customers, too.
