My Mobile Internet Usage

Posted by on Jul 29, 2011 in Tech Chic | 0 comments

Smart recently just announced their new “Always On”  mobile internet packages.

For the amazing price of P300 for 30 days!

The catch here is, it is not time based – not unlimited usage for 30 days.  Instead, you will be given 250MB to use for that whole 30 days.

 

I don’t track my mobile internet usage but that made me really think of what my actual internet mobile usage is.

 

First of all, I use internet at home when possible or Wifi spots when I’m out.  So what I do when I’m mobile is:

  • check emails
  • Google stuff like restaurant numbers or location
  • plurk, foursquare, tweet and facebook
  • Check the social media accounts I manage (I use Seesmic for mobile)
  • chat on fring / instant message
  • maybe blog sometimes

It differs for everyone and my mobile activity might be different from yours.  If you want to track your mobile internet usage, you can download Traffic Monitor by RadioOpt GmbH.  Or you can look it up on Android market as well.  I’m not sure for iPhone, blackberry and Nokia.

In one day I used up only 6.6MB and that included: Gmail, Fring (Instant message) I even downloaded a 784kb app on Market, Facebook, Twitter, plurk…  update the social media I manage..google.. and visited my blog (it’s mobile friendly :D)

But I had to disable photos on the internet just so that it won’t download too much bytes!!!

 

I say this plan is a great deal – easy on the pocket but still always on the go.

Just use wifi when you can – at home or at cafe/restaurants :)
