Does anyone know approx. How much data the elder scrolls online uses? I have satelite internet and i have a cap of 150 gb a month. Will it be worth it to buy eso, or will it just eat all my data Also does anyone know how much data most multiplayer games
use as well as say netflix or even just the xboxone just being idle? Thanks
There is no exact hard number to specify how much data a game uses the biggest chunk of data goes to updates, however since
Elder Scrolls Online is an online only game you'll need
proper internet speed and ping which may be an issue with
satellite internet. Same goes for Netflix, it all depends on which subscription you have SD or HD and how much you watch.
The Xbox One required these internet speeds, ping is best between below 60 though for multiplayer, you can do a speed test here
http://www.speedtest.net/ and compare that with the speeds below. Be aware that
Speedtest.net uses Megabit instead of Megabyte so if you get a value of lets say 60Mbps you'll have to divide that value by 8 to get the speed in Megabytes.
SD video streaming
HD video streaming
3 MB/s or 3,000
1 MB/s or 1,000
3.5 MB/s or 3,500
0.5 MB/s or 500
To give an example, I use A LOT of internet
My Xbox is on Instant On at the moment so it download updates whenever they're out, I'm also in the NXOE program so constant updates on top of that also a few beta's which have large updates.
Take into account that I am a high internet user so you can easily halve that bandwidth usage.
Also being idle my Xbox One uses about 50-500B/s that's Bytes per second so not a lot at all.
For years I had been on a similar data cap as you and I didn't have any issues, just make sure to put your Xbox on Powersaving mode so it doesn't download updates automatically which saves you bandwidth.
Did this solve your problem?
Sorry this didn't help.
Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
