Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Aircard Bandwidth Usage

SlapnutsSlapnuts Registered User regular
I've got a Verizon aircard. I want to be able to update Twitter as many as 20 times a day and log in to hotmail and shoot about 5 emails out a day. I've got the 5GB/month plan and would like to leave the card on all the time for the Twitter updates Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for about 3 to 5 weeks.

Will I be in danger of going over my cap?

    Text is nothing. I'd be surprised if you went over 100MB in a month.

    Loading all the graphics for Hotmail and Twitter is a consideration, but that shouldn't suck bandwidth right?

    Just make sure you cache images and you shouldn't have a problem there either.

    I do tech support for AT&T Aircards, and I know you can check your data usage from a log in the connection client. You can also check from your online account. You can even call in and check the latest data usage. I would assume Verizon has the same sort of features. Unless you are torrenting over their 3g network and downloading large movies, you will be hard pressed to go over 5GB. Again, not sure about Verizon, but AT&T's "5gb limit" is a soft limit, meaning you are not going to rack up overages and you will be well warned before getting cut off.

    We are in quite the gaming drought.
