Get the Most out of your usage
At QINIQ we understand that managing your monthly Internet usage can sometimes be challenging. We want you to get the most out of every byte of data in your service plan, so we’ve come up with some helpful tips.
Tip 1 – Videos
Basic Internet browsing or email reading consumes very little usage. BUT downloading movies can consume a lot. Watching streaming videos on a regular basis will make it hard to conserve usage. High-resolution videos use more data. If the site offers the ability to select a lower resolution then do it and save. On Youtube, click the Settings icon, then Quality, then select your resolution of choice.
Tip 2 – Music
When streaming music, select “low quality” stream instead of “high quality”. A 128kbps audio stream will use about 57 MB in 1 hour. Most people can’t tell the difference between 128 and 320kbps on a good sound system, so when using computer speakers, a lower bit rate, even 96kbps or even 64kbps, will work just fine.
Tip 3 – Online Games
Online gaming can go through a lot of data rather quickly. If you are a gamer, be prepared to consume more usage.
Tip 4 – Unplug
Any web-enable device connected to the Internet can use bandwidth without your knowledge. These include modern TVs, Blu-Ray Players, Receivers and Game Consoles. Be sure to unplug these devices when not in use.
Tip 5 – Security
Make sure your computer has the latest security software. This will prevent usage loss through spam delivery infections and involuntary participation of “denial of service” attacks.
Tip 6 – Home Network Security
Prevent “piggybacking” on your home network by ensuring that you have proper security on your wireless router. Follow the routers setup and privacy instructions.
Tip 7 – Video Chat
Video chat applications like Skype and Facetime can use a lot of bytes, depending on the length of your calls, because you are constantly uploading and downloading video and audio in each session. Be aware that if you make very long calls, you will consume usage faster than you may wish.
Tip 8 – Compress Photos
Compress your photos before uploading to a website or sending via email. A photo taken by a cell phone is usually between 2 and 4 MB. A converted JPEG can be as small as 50kb, and will be fine for basic online viewing.
Tip 9 – Caching
Make sure your web browsers are set to cache redundant website content so you don’t waste bandwidth downloading the same stuff every time you visit a page.
