Data Tips | Streaming
Streaming movies and TV (ex. Netflix) is something many of our customers use, but it’s also one of the biggest causes of people exceeding their monthly data limit. Even online video like Youtube can really eat into your bandwidth. Many people don’t realize how lowering the quality doesn’t make a huge difference in experience, but can make a huge difference when it comes to usage. Or, you can customize your Internet plan and add some data on every month.
