Watch your Data if You Have Apple TV+, Disney+, or Google Stadia
Since these new services have recently hit the market, we want to remind you that streaming media and games will use your monthly data allowance. Use the settings in each respective service to lower the stream resolution to conserve data. Keep in mind that even at lower settings, a significant amount of data will be used.
For example, playing games at the recommended minimum on Google Stadia will use 4.5 GB per hour.
It is important to note that Stadia’s speed and data requirements will not be the main contributing factor to playability (or lack of). We previously had to only worry about customers playing multiplayer games, but even single player games require very low (<150ms) latency to perform decently.
