Check your coverage

Why not check your coverage in the places you go to most?

O2's our network partner, and they've already launched 4G across the country, with even more cities coming throughout 2014.
Top tip: To keep your data costs down, use Wi-Fi whenever you can.

Data calculator

Check our data calculator to ensure you have the right amount of data to meet your needs.


How often do you use data on your phone (not including using Wi-Fi)?

  1. Email

    Send & receive

    How much data is that?

    It mostly depends on how many attachments you're sending (and how big they are). Without attachments, the average email is around 10KB. With attachments, it's more like 500KB. So let's say the average email is 100KB. That means:

    • Sometimes works out to roughly 50MB, or 500 emails.
    • Often works out to roughly 100MB, or 1000 emails.
    • Loads works out to roughly 250MB, or 2,500 emails.
  2. Browsing

    Sites & content

    How much data is that?

    Let's say that every hour browsing websites or playing online games uses an average of 15MB. That means:

    • Sometimes works out to roughly 30MB, or 2 hours.
    • Often works out to roughly 120MB, or 8 hours.
    • Loads works out to roughly 225MB, or 15 hours.
  3. Social

    Shares & status updates

    How much data is that?

    Let's say that 15 minutes on Facebook is around 5MB. That means:

    • Sometimes works out to roughly 20MB, or 1 hour.
    • Often works out to roughly 100MB, or 5 hours.
    • Loads works out to roughly 300MB, or 15 hours.
  4. Apps

    Download apps

    How much data is that?

    Let's say the average app download is around 10MB. That means:

    • Sometimes works out to roughly 20MB, or 2 apps.
    • Often works out to roughly 120MB, or 12 apps.
    • Loads works out to roughly 300MB, or 30 apps.

    TIP: Downloading Apps can use a lot of data. Use Wi-Fi to save your data.

  5. Music

    Streaming & downloads

    How much data is that?

    Let's say the average song is around 3MB but can be as much as 10MB. We're being cautious with 7MB. That means:

    • Sometimes works out to roughly 70MB, or 10 songs.
    • Often works out to roughly 350MB, or 50 songs.
    • Loads works out to roughly 1.4GB, or 200 songs.
  6. Video Clips

    Streaming

    How much data is that?

    You'll automatically enjoy enhanced quality videos using a 4G connection. We think watching 15 minutes of YouTube videos is roughly 60MB.

    • Sometimes works out to roughly 120MB, or 30 minutes of videos a month.
    • Often works out to roughly 320MB, or 3 hours of videos a month.
    • Loads works out to roughly 1.44GB, or 6 hours of videos a month.

    TIP: Watching video clips can use a lot of data. Use Wi-Fi to save your data.

  7. Mobile TV

    Watch films or TV

    How much data is that?

    You'll automatically enjoy enhanced quality videos using a 4G connection. We think watching 1 hour of TV or film videos is roughly 380MB.

    • Sometimes works out to roughly 380MB, or 1 hour of shows/films a month.
    • Often works out to roughly 760MB, or 2 hours of shows/films a month.
    • Loads works out to roughly 3.8GB, or 10 hours of shows/films a month.

    TIP: Watching TV or films can use a lot of data. Use Wi-Fi to save your data.
