With regard to Jetpacks, how much data is eaten up if you use an Apple TV or other streaming device?

I haven't had a Jetpack for over a year...did love it, but find the convenience of the cellular data within my IPad Mini so much more convenient, especially when traveling.

You really can't do much streaming, unless you want to pay really big bucks.

I had 14 or 15 GB a month, and could maybe watch one movie on that, toward the end of my data month, to avoid overage.

I switched to a home WiFi, and dropped my Verizon to 2GB/month, unless traveling.

The reduction in Verizon more than paid for adding the WiFi at home, and I've been very happy with it.

Yeah, I wouldn't 't plan on streaming videos via cellular data unless I had an unlimited data plan. Even then, I'd be careful not to consume more than 200GB per month, to avoid calling too much attention to myself.

My DVD player still works, so I'm good with that.

Depends on the quality, but suffice it to say it's "a lot".

Streaming and cellular networks don't mix.

I have an unlimited plan on my iPad but rarely stream anyway. I'm a big iTunes nut, but enjoy it mostly at home with unlimited internet.

On the road, I rely on saved stuff.
