How Much Data Do I Need?

When we talk to people who are considering Republic Wireless, one of the top questions we get is, "how much data do I need?" Trying to determine how much data you need can be tricky, especially in a world where carriers are trying to sell you on the myth of unlimited plans. The fact is, an unlimited data plan is an expensive insurance policy - one that the other carriers are hoping you'll buy. The average cell phone user on an unlimited plan is paying for almost 18GB of unused data! Just think what you could do with all that extra money!

With widespread publicly available WiFi and some savvy data-saving skills, most users don’t need this one-size-fits-all plan. In fact, the Republic Wireless community is so savvy that our average member uses less than 1GB each month.

So, what exactly are they getting for that 1GB each month? How much is 1GB of data? What actually contributes to data usage and what does it mean for you? How far can you go with 1GB of data? Let's take a look:

You can get a lot more out of 1GB or even 500MB than I initially thought - especially by following some super simple data-saving tips, like limiting your cellular use on common apps and setting your apps to only update over WiFi rather than over cell.  I hope this chart helps you see just how much you can do with just 1GB of data, so you can join the rest of the Republic Wireless community and save money by not having a pricy unlimited plan. Remember, you can always use your Republic app to add cell data on demand whenever you want and track your usage.
