How much data do I need?

The amount of mobile data that you use can be difficult to understand, since few people have any real idea of how much of your allowance is taken up by loading web pages, streaming videos and other smartphone tasks.

Our data calculator can help you to get an idea of what you’re using, so you know what kind of data plan you need. Just move the sliders left and right to work out your data usage.

Our calculator can’t offer a guaranteed figure of the amount of data you’re using, but it will give you an impression that helps when choosing a contract. Remember though, connecting to a Wi-Fi network doesn’t eat up your mobile data, so if you’re downloading large files it might be worth seeking one out.
