What happens if I run out of data?

At Aerial Direct we will make sure you are on the perfect tariff for your needs, however, if you do have a busy month(s) and do end up using your data, we would recommend to either upgrade your tariff to a larger data use or buy a one-off data bolt on. Alternatively you can wait until your monthly data allowance resets at your next bill date.

Where does my data go?

Downloading video eats the most data, but sending or receiving emails with large attachments can use just as much. Here are a few examples, to give you a rough idea.

Without attachments, the average email uses between 10 and 30KB of data. With attachments, it can be anything from 500KB for one photo, to several MB for large documents.

Social media
Sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram can quickly burn through your data. Tweeting a message uses about 500KB, but if you’re uploading lots of photos, it’ll eat up more.

Apps, games and music
Downloading an app or game uses around 30MB and using apps online may drain your data quickly. Playing a game online could be anything up to 60MB an hour, or more. Downloading one song uses around 3 to 10MB.

Video, TV and films
In HD, an average video clip uses 3MB. 95MB for a TV show and 570MB for a film.
