estimated data usage

The amount of data you will use depends on what services/features you access on your MATE mobile service. Some types of files or features use a lot of data. These include:

  • downloading music, photos, movies and software;
  • software updates;
  • streaming video (such as YouTube);
  • playing mobile games online;
  • sending emails with large files attached (such as video, music or picture files);
  • uploading – such as loading photos and videos onto your social networks like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc.
  • video and voice calling.

Knowing how much data different activities, like emailing, browsing the internet, and streaming video or audio content use can also help you to keep your data use in check. See an example below:



approximate data used

Sending or receiving 40 emails without attachments 2 MB
Visiting 5 different web pages 2 MB
Browsing Facebook for 10 minutes 3 MB
Streaming 10 minutes of audio content 10 MB
