Data usage

Does anyone know how much data would be used for streaming say a 90 minute football match. I have a 500mb allowance and was wondering how much a full game would use up.

 

Thanks

Re: Data usage

Hi pnedingo, are you using Android?

 

If so we estimate around 15MB for every 3 minutes of streaming so for a 90 minute match you are probably looking at about 450MB.

Re: Data usage

Alot. Don't know exactly how much though. At a guess I would say 1.5 GB. Your network provider should alert you when your near the end of your usage.

Re: Data usage

Hi Stan, it varies on iOS but over 3G we suggest 180-1400Kbps depending on content/device. 1400Kbps is somthing like 31MB for 3 minutes or 930MB for 90 minutes. I'm not sure if the 1400Kbps bitrate is available on iPhone and iPad or only on iPad given that it has a larger screen size. On Wi-Fi we recommend a minimum 2Mbps for iOS.

 

I'll ask if we have maximum bitrate figures for iPhone and iPad.

Re: Data usage

Hi Stan, apparently both iPhone and iPad can require the higher bit rates. It's well worth keeping a close eye on data useage if streaming anything over 3G.
