    Don't know about xbox live, but my daughter used my computer hooked up to the mobile hotspot on my phone today while we were doing a road trip and she blew through about 500 MB in an hour going on Facebook and Youtube.

    Im sure it wouldnt take long to burn through that. But for future references stick with you topic. All 3 you have posted are very similar. Why not just add to the original instead of opening a new topic.

    YouTube will always kill since you have to download and buffer the videos. Facebook is much lighter since it only downloads images. When I use my phone to play an mmo (rift) on my laptop, I can go a good two hours and only use a couple hundred at absolute most, maybe even 100. Best way is to get a data widget and test before its too late and you've gone over.

    Actually, if you had unlimited data on prior to July 7th, you can add unlimited hotspot for $30/month, prorated at $1/day if you don't need a full month.



    Thanks, Robrecht

    That's because most of the data transfer is via upload not download. I do the same thing :p
