  1. How much data will xbox live use?


    My nan has a 4GB Broadband internet and is like a portable wifi so it has its own battery and unfortunatley imthe one who has been using all the data so the other day i stuck the portable wifi in my room and i played online (There is a screen on the portable
    wifi to show how much data you use, how much battery life it has left and hown many devices is connected to it) and i hardly used any at all it used like 30MB in an hour and there is 1000MB in a GB so idk how imusing all the data and once it only used 2-3MB
    in half an hour. does it depend what game im playing because ive been playing GTA V online

    :)

    Hotspot data usage

    How much data will Xbox one chew through in about 4 hours on mobile data hotspot playing Xbox live? My concern is it will go way over my data.

  3. How do you know if you are the host of a match in multiplayer?

    Hi guys!

    I was just wondering if any of you know how to tell if you are the host of a match in multiplayer mode in Black Ops 2. How much data does it use to host a match? I ask this because I seem to be using a lot of data. Also, do any of you know how
    much data Xbox live uses when you are in a party with 4 to 6 people?

    How much data will xbox live use?

    There should be tiny different between games depending on how the multiplayer game was build and how depth in detail need to synchronize with the game server.

    The bigger useage different is when you "just connected to Xbox Live" between playing Multiplayer or downloading some content from Xbox marketplace.

    Download size to expect for my 360 games on X1?

    Hi BookishFlunky90!

    We don't have the exact information on the download size of those game titles, unfortunately, but they shouldn't be too big! The games will download over Xbox Live and shouldn't take too much of your data. We recommend downloading one title at a time and
    seeing how much data that takes so you can adjust from that.

    If you have any additional Xbox questions, let us know!

    Hotspot questions.

    I was wondering how much of my data plan it would use if I'm trying to download digital games using my mobile Hotspot to connect to Live?

    How much internet data does live use per month?

    I know that cod black ops two is one of the highest online data users as far as xbl is concerned. Don't know about GTA. COD can pull as much as 30 to 40 mb an hour. At 50 mb/h at 10 hours a day is still only 1 gig a day up to 31 gig a month. If your going
    through 300g a month and only playing xbl you need to change your router passwords and call your provider and try and find out what is eating your data. Good luck to you.

    How much internet data does live use per month?

    [quote user="WhiteBoi360"]So my only guess is XBL and MMO PC games are using TONS of data[/quote]

    Well, it depends how often and how long you play the games.
    In a previous thread
    , I did route the traffic for a Live multiplayer match for a few minutes through my PC and captured the data.

    During Multiplayer matches VERY SMALL data packets (approximately a hundred bytes or 0.1-0.2 MB per packet) are sent around, as the multiplayer data should travel quickly through even the slowest lines to your opponents or teammates.

    From my capture playing Battlefield 1943 I averaged to about 1,5 to 2 MB per hour. So even if you play multiplayer around the clock every day for a month (30 days), you should just about pass one Gigabyte.

    However I didn't play other games and haven't captured GTA Online yet. So this is just an estimate. But even if I double the numbers, you should never reach the amount of 300 GB only by Multiplayer and MMO gametime.

    However, keep in mind that depending on the game you play, the MMO Game Client often updates the Client and might download a lot of data before getting you in the game.

    Additionally, keep in mind that Windows Machines pull Windows Update patches automatically depending on your setting without you doing anything. And in the case of Windows 8 your machines might have downloaded the 8.1 update which is several Gigabytes large.

    And finally: Check the settings of your router. Some models can be set up for flat rate plans with no limit, time metered connections and data metered connections, and sometimes these routers keep a journal with the amount of data transferred or how long the
    router was connected to the internet.

    See if you can set your router to a data metered connection limited to 300 GB and see if the router keeps a journal of your data usage. That way you might have a comparison to the claims of your ISP (however, keep in mind that these journals are just an estimate).
