How much BYOC data?
Posted January 8, 2015on:
When I conduct workshops or do talks, I often bring my own Internet connection with a mifi device.
When I had the presence of mind, I took note of how data I consumed.
I estimated the amount of data by comparing the before and after quota of my prepaid 4G SIM account from M1.
My talks are interactive and I rely on Google Slides. But these sessions rarely extend beyond an hour and do not require as much data.
My workshops last about three hours and rely on more media-rich resources. But I save on data consumption by making local versions of online videos.
I share this as a reminder to myself and as a tip for others roughly how much data to set aside when bringing your own connection while providing professional development with others.
