It’s worth highlighting some of the common activities which have the potential to use a lot of data.
If video streaming platforms such as Stan, Netflix or YouTube are left of default settings they have the potential to use a lot of data especially if watching for long periods of time.
While audio streaming typically uses up to a fraction of what video-streaming platforms use, it can still have an impact on your monthly data allowance.
Digital gaming or gaming consoles can chew through a lot of unexpected data if set to automatically update games.
Automated downloading and uploading via cloud software may not seem like a lot of data but it can add up over time especially if larger files are being transferred.
If you are trying to reduce your data usage, please be aware if automatic updates are enabled on certain devices (laptop, PC or games console) it can use a lot of unexpected data.
