Data costs on your phone
What happens when I run out of data?
There are plenty of options to add extra data and stay connected, for both Pay monthly and Pay as you go customers.
How much data am I using?
How we work it out (based on average data use)
1GB = 1024MB
1MB = 1024KB
- One minute of streaming video: 3.75MB
- One minute of streaming music: 720KB (normal quality – 96kbps)
- One social media post: 350KB (we're assuming you have a photo or link within the post)
- One web page browsed / app checked: 1MB
- One email read or sent: 70KB (this is worked on an assumption ¼ of emails have attachments and ¾ don't)
