question regarding usage with Viastat

Thanks in advance, seriously excuse my dumb question but I don't know anything about any of this topic. 

 

If I get on my desk top computer and listen to music on itunes, am I using up my allotted 60 gigs, or whatever they call it, am I going through them? Or is it not considered being on the internet?

Re: question regarding usage with Viastat

@gulf coast girl,  although I do not have viasat I went to their FAQ pages and found the following which shows how much data is used streaming music.

 

This is the address for the FAQ pages:   viasat.com/satellite-internet/faq/

 

This is a link to data usage activities to help gauge what uses the most data:     news.viasat.com/blog/satellite-internet/keeping-an-eye-on-internet-data

 

With 1 GB of data, you can visit 3,000 new webpages, send 20,000 text-only emails, listen to 24 hours of music streaming on services like Spotify (at 96 kbps), and more.

 

There is also a listing of common app data useage and it lists music streaming as 150 MB per hour. 

 

 

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?
