I'd like some feedback on data usage on Verizon compared to AT

I'm a former AT&T customer. Had an iPhone 6S on that network and now have an iPhone 6S on VZW. Extremely similar usage patterns with Netflix, Amazon Prime and HBO Now are resulting in significantly higher data utilization than on AT&T. I am scratching my head at this and can't think of a logical reason why this would be. Any thoughts?

Re: I'd like some feedback on data usage on Verizon compared to AT

One way to monitor this is to review the data usage tracker of the iPhone 6. If the pattern of usage is still the same then the reports coming from the tracker will be the same regardless of what carrier you are currently registered. You can do this by going to Settings > Cellular > and scroll down and review each app.

You might want to to check as the increased usage might be being caused by another app. You can also log-in to My Verizon and go to View Usage to check your current usage as well as the data utilization. This will tell you how much percentage of the usage is spent on Video, Social Networking etc.
