Understanding your data usage can help you save money on a low-limit data plan or can help you realize that you really do need a pricier.

Data usage is how much data your device uploads or downloads while on Wi-Fi. To make sure that you're not using too much data on your data plan, you can check and control your data usage.

Check your data usage at any time by signing on to the VostroNet Portal
