WHEN AM I USING THE MOST DATA & HOW MUCH DATA IS RIGHT FOR ME
Watching movies comes in 1st & uses the most data. Streaming videos comes in 2nd. Music is 3rd. Photos/Images is 4th. Apps completely vary. Emails, Texts, VoIP & most GPS use very limited data in the KB or even byte range. Please feel free to use our SHARK WiFi Data Calculator to estimate your data usage. We recommend changing your settings to Standard Definition when watching a movie to conserve/minimize/reduce data usage. Example being 1.5 hour movie = approximately 1.7GB of data used in standard definition.
Other examples below provide a general guideline for the amount of data used per service:
- 1 hour surfing the Web 15MB
- 1 email (with standard attachment) 300KB
- 1 social media post with photo 500KB
- 1 minute of streaming music (HQ) 2.5MB (150MB/hour)
- 1 minute of streaming video (HD) 15MB (900MB/hour)
Note: Data usage varies by device. The above examples are based on averages and are estimates only. The actual amount of data used for the described activity can vary.
