Hotspot to Xbox data usage

I intend to use my phone as a hotspot to connect my Xbox to the internet for updates.
Approximately how much extra data will be used by using the hotspot, on top of what will be used just downloading updates for each GB for example?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Hotspot to Xbox data usage

In theory if the download is 1 Giga Byte in size your will use 1 Giga Byte of cellular data. If you have a bad cellular connection and there are CRC errors in the data download which require re transmission of the data you will use more than 1 Giga Byte. Unless you have very bad reception you will use 1Giga Byte per Gigabyte of download file size.
