No one wants to pay for unused data or overpay for using too much. It’s like the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears — find a plan with too much data and you’re overpaying, but choose one with too little data, you might get slapped with overage charges you could have avoided. The goal? Find an internet data plan that’s just right.
So, knowing how much data certain activities call for and how much you use can help inform you to sign up for the right amount of data.
Certain activities require more data use than others. One minute of surfing the web, for example, uses about 250 kilobytes (KB) of data, or 15 megabytes (MB) per hour. For a look at other common internet activities and how much data they require, AT&T, Verizon Wireless and other internet service providers (ISPs) provide handy charts and calculator tools so you can identify how much data you likely use.
