TekSavvy Insider - - Insider Update -

Data con­sump­tion is a hot topic lately. Have you re­ceived a no­ti­fi­ca­tion re­gard­ing your us­age, or per­haps found your monthly in­voice to be a lit­tle higher and thought to your­self, “there’s no way I’ve used this much data! There must be some­thing wrong.” It’s hap­pened to us all. Some­times the most in­no­cent down­load can wreak havoc on your data cap with­out you re­al­iz­ing it. Be­ing on the go con­stantly, we’ve be­gun to in­cor­po­rate cloud stor­age into our daily lives. This al­lows us to ac­cess im­por­tant doc­u­ments or me­dia from any de­vice no mat­ter where we are – as long as we have an ac­tive and suit­able In­ter­net con­nec­tion. If you’ve ever up­loaded files to cloud ser­vices such as Drop­box, when­ever you ac­cess that in­for­ma­tion you are down­load­ing a copy of it to your de­vice from the cloud. While up­load­ing in­for­ma­tion from a Tek Savvy con­nec­tion will not count to­wards your data use, re­triev­ing this in­for­ma­tion can quickly begin adding up. Plenty of pro­grams and de­vices have the abil­ity – and need – to down­load up­date files au­to­mat­i­cally be­hind the scenes, to make our lives eas­ier. This may be caus­ing you to eat up your data with­out know­ing it. Many pro­grams and de­vices have down­load sched­ulers that al­low you to spec­ify time frames for down­loads. With Tek Savvy’s un­lim­ited down­loads be­tween 2am – 8am, this is per­fect. When you are home en­joy­ing your Tek Savvy ser­vice, it’s al­ways a great idea to be mind­ful of how much data you are us­ing. If you aren’t sure what you need in terms of band­width, we have the Tek Savvy Find Your Plan handy tool to help. Check out the My Ac­count cus­tomer por­tal that al­lows you to track your monthly data con­sump­tion and plan your use ac­cord­ingly. If you be­lieve there is a bet­ter speed or data cap for your needs, you may re­quest a change of ser­vice through the cus­tomer por­tal.
