(KATV) If you think you're already paying through the nose for your Smartphone data plan, just wait. It's expected to get worse.

A new report released by Cisco, predicts monthly bills will be about $40 higher by 2017 thanks to 4G. That's because Americans are expected to use 6.2 gigabytes of data per month by then. That's eight times more than today.

In the U.S. last year, 752 MB were used by the average Smartphone owner.
