Data Calculators and megabytes
Online data is broken up into megabytes and gigabytes. If you are not familiar with the concept don’t worry. We have provided a data calculator that can be used to calculate how much data you will consume. Based on the data calculator, you can then make a selection of the plan that suits you best.
To help even more, we have made a quick guide as to how many megabytes the cool stuff online actually is… check it out!!
The average download size of a 2 hour film is about 1.5gb
The average download size of a music album is between 150mb and 250mb.
The average size of a YouTube video clip is between 2mb – 15mb. The file size limit on YouTube is 100mb.
The average size of a text only email (between 80-100 words) is 7kb – 11 kb.
All of the above are flexible rates and averages. Data in movies for example can range between 700mb to 3gb for the same film. It is the quality of the sound and image that will affect data rates. Blu-ray downloads and HD videos consume even more data due to their high quality visuals and sound.
