How Much Data Will I Use By Listening to Central Coast LIVE! Radio In My Car?
Since listening to Central Coast LIVE! Radio on your car radio requires a phone with a data connection, mobile data will be consumed while tuning into our Internet-based radio station. However, the amount of data used is very lightweight, to the point where listening to one hour of Central Coast LIVE! Radio would only eat through about 28.8 MB of data. At that rate, you could listen to more than an hour each day all month before cracking a 1 GB data plan.
If mobile data use is a big concern, some carriers offer data plans where content streamed from certain providers doesn’t count against your limit. So if your provider offers a plan like that, or you’re willing to switch, you can listen to as much in your car as you like without worrying about going over your data limit.
