What are your users doing when they are eating up gobs of data?
We are here to tell you that data consumption — for different types of files — is not created equal. Below is a helpful table, thanks Verizon, to help show you what you get from your data usage:
So what is that user who is saying they are using their 35 GB for “business use” must mean they are sending about 3 and a half million emails each month — or looking at about 100,000 web views.
Perhaps not a big deal if you dont worry about cost or productivity but the user who is using this 35 GB per month with an overage rate of $10 or $15 per GB, these users can be costing you about $500 a month on average.
To help you gauge what you’re using in a day, here are some additional averages:
100 kb = text only email
500 kb = visiting one webpage
61,440 kb = listening to 60 minutes of music
358,400 kb = watching 60 minutes of video
3,072 kb = downloading/uploading one hi-resolution photo
5,120 kb = using navigation for 60 minutes
For texting, messages are measured as events rather than in kb and are charged per address (recipient) sent or received.
One message sent to one person = one event
One message sent to 10 persons = 10 events
The text messages show up as a tally on the wireless bill as the number sent and received. Wireless plans vary, with some putting a ceiling on the number of texts per month to unlimited options.
By understanding how much data and messaging you use in an average month, it positions you well for selecting the right plan to meet your needs to help you save time and money.
