Data useage

Answered

Hello, I am wondering how much data I will use by listening to ABC FM? I live in Margaret River West Australia where we don't have good radio reception.  I'm using a Toshiba Windows 7 Laptop.  Thanks.

Hey @estrela

 

From the ABC Website :https://radio.abc.net.au/help/online

 

"Data usage, when streaming online, varies depending on your device and connection. When listening to ABC Radio, you’ll use roughly 30-60MB per hour, which is similar to spending 2-3 hours on Facebook or 10-20 minutes watching videos on YouTube.

At home, it’s worth checking to see if your Internet Service Provider (ISP) has an unmetered ‘freezone’ for the ABC so that you can listen without affecting your bandwidth limit."

Re: Data useage

You could use the app called My Data Mgr http://www.mydatamanagerapp.com/ it lets you time how much data you use with a stop watch for example if you want to test 15 minutes worth just start timer and play your stream, comeback in 15 minutes later and check the data used since you started the timer. 

 

I use it all the time, very handy.

 

 

EDIT: Sorry didn't realise you meant home based internet streaming, not mobile, but I will leave it here anyway.
