Connecting to the internet over our network use some of your mobile data allowance. But, some activities use more of your allowance than others.
Viewing web pages on a browser and sending or receiving emails generally use a small amount of data but watching catch-up TV, or YouTube videos uses significantly more.
These figures give you an idea of how much data certain activities use. They’re based on averages, so your actual usage may be a little higher or lower.
