How much data will I need?

4 months ago

Determining your eSIM data needs depends on your usage patterns and the specific activities you perform on your device. Consider several factors when evaluating your eSIM data usage:

1. Online Activities: Activities like streaming videos, music, or podcasts consume substantial eSIM data. Streaming a high-definition movie can use up to 3 GB of data per hour. On the other hand, web browsing, checking emails, and using social media generally require less data.
2. Downloads and Updates: Downloading apps, software updates, and other files can be data-intensive, especially for larger files or updates on your Esimatic eSIM.
3. Online Gaming: Online gaming can use a moderate amount of data, although the consumption varies depending on the game and how often you play.
4. Video and Voice Calls: Video and voice calls can use a significant amount of data, especially for long periods on your eSIM.
5. Tethering or Hotspot: If you use your mobile device for tethering or creating a hotspot for other devices, consider their eSIM data usage as well.

You can check your device’s data usage statistics or contact your service provider for more information on your eSIM data usage estimation. You can start with a lower eSIM data plan and then adjust it based on your usage habits over time.
