Data Usage

Most mobile phone contracts will include a data usage allocation. This can be really useful to have if you’re out and about and don’t have a Wi-Fi connection. It can be a bit confusing to work out how much data you use by going on the Internet but the table below will give you an indication of the things you can do with your data amount (please note each of the options is the maximum you can use for your allocation, for example with 250MB you would go over your limit if you viewed 2,500 simple websites and then streamed 30 minutes worth of video):

Data Size

250MB

500MB

Simple websites (mainly text based)

It’s best to check the size of the files you’re planning to stream or download when you’re connecting to the Internet without Wi-Fi to make sure you won’t exceed your data limit.
