One key way to manage the amount of data you are using is by checking the quality settings of video streaming websites or applications. Video streaming uses some of the highest amounts of data of any online activity. Downloading and updating online games (xbox, Playstation) can also use large amounts of data.
If you have concerns about your data usage, we recommend first reviewing the video playback settings (resolution/video quality and autoplay) on the apps and devices where you stream the most video. Choose SD or HD versions of content rather than UHD or 4K.
If you have gaming devices such as xbox or Playstation, remove games you aren’t using and let updates finish before disconnecting the device. Updates that are interrupted will start over next time you connect.
Interfaces for these apps and devices change frequently and not all available apps and devices are listed. Visit the manufacturer’s support page for your specific app or device for the most up-to-date information.
