(CNN) – If you think your smartphone bill is already too high, just wait, it’s expected to get worse.

A new Cisco report predicts monthly bills will be about $40 dollars higher by 2017.

That’s because Americans are expected to use 8 times more data per month by then.

The report also predicts connection speed will be three times faster in 2017.
