Xplornet Internet is now available with unlimited data on all platforms foe worry free usage each month. 

Most customers don't have a clue as to how much data they use each month. But with Xplornet's new unlimited Internet packages you no longer have to worry about it.

First in non-technical terms, “data usage” is the amount of Internet used or bandwidth required for each activity you do with your Internet service. Some online activities use much more data than others. In particular streaming full-screen video (Netflix) uses an abundance of your monthly data allowance. Basically everything you do that requires an Internet connection uses your data. And this is true whether you’re hard wired or connected via your personal Wi-Fi network (wireless router).

Look at the examples below just for fun. This will give you an idea of how much data each activity requires.
