Does your Internet service provider give you the option for unlimited Internet and you are not sure if you should take advantage of it? Here are some reasons why you should consider a plan that doesn't have a data cap.
You Use Large Cloud Backups
Are you currently backing up a lot of data to the cloud? If so, it will require a lot of data in order to get this job done. Even backing up a single hard drive that's over 1TB can be enough data to exceed the data cap of a typical home Internet plan. Having unlimited Internet data will ensure that all of your data is backed up to the cloud and that you won't lose anything that's important to you.
You Download A Lot Of Digital Video Games
Long gone are the days where video games were only a few megabytes and fit onto a small cartridge. The video games made today frequently exceed the storage capacity of a Blu-ray disc. If you are buying physical media, you likely need to download a lot of large updates that will consume your data plan. If you buy digital, then you will be frequently downloading entire games that are 50GB to 100GB in size. Games with small hard drives will then need to shuffle data on and off their console's internal drive, resulting in downloading data frequently based on what games they are in the mood to play. Unlimited Internet data will make it so that you do not have to worry about these necessities of gaming to cause you to run into a data cap limitation.
You Stream Plenty Of 4K Video
Have you cut the cord from cable TV and now streaming all of your media? You may not realize how much data this actually uses. While the switch to 4K media greatly increases the data needed to watch a movie or television show, data caps have not increased proportionally. As you factor in multiple people in the household that stream 4K media, you'll find that you are using much more data than you imagined. If you have an unlimited Internet data plan, there will be no need to stress about how much data each person in the home is using.
