What’s your data use like? Choosing the right data package can be difficult. Most people don’t understand what activities constitute how much data usage that entails. If your internet speeds are less than 1MB then your usage levels may well be restricted by the speed of your connection rather than how you would like to use your internet.

When you have a Superfast broadband connection available, will your usage trends change? Absolutely! You will naturally be more inclined to watch more videos; use catch up TV services more and stream more data – hence more data being used.

Below we offer some advice on how much data you may need and what a data package might equate to.

Light Data Use

This is likely a home user for general web browsing, keeping in touch with friends and family and sending emails.

  • 2,500 music tracks
  • 64 hours streaming music
