2 Gigs of Data

Interesting data point on whether 2 GB / month of data is enough on cell plans. At our MHVLUG meeting the local wireless wasn’t working, so I instead just turned on the wifi access point on my phone for my laptop and tablet so I could do a little bit of live demo. It was on for 2.5 hours, with a total data usage of 46MB (which is about 15% of what I’ve used total this month).

Yes, bandwidth caps basically kill mobile streaming as a business (mobile pandora, hulu, netflix, are definitely being hurt by this), but for non streaming interactions, 2GB is way more than I’ll use in a month.
