ESTIMATING INTERNET
USAGE REQUIREMENTS

What is Internet Usage?

Internet usage is the total amount of data which gets transferred between your computer or other devices including smart phone, tablet and the Internet over a specific period of time. This amount of data is measured in bytes, kilobytes, megabytes and gigabytes.

Data can be transferred in two ways:

  • From your device or computer to the Internet (upload – e.g. uploading pictures to a social media site).
  • From the Internet to your computer or device (download – e.g. watching a video online);

However you use the internet on your computer or device, all activities that use the Internet contribute to your overall usage which includes Uploads and Downloads.
