Apple FaceTime data usage rate

Apple FaceTime data usage rate

Does anyone know an average, or normal min / max data usage for Apple Facetime on this system? Problem is Xfinity Mobel calls can not use Wifi at this time.

Re: Apple FaceTime data usage rate

Similarly, no cellular calling minutes are used during the video portion of a FaceTime call. FaceTime calling can be used over a cellular data connection with an iPhone. Using FaceTime over a cellular data connection (3G / LTE) will use your data plan. Five minutes of FaceTime video calling uses up to 15 MB of data.Oct 24, 2017      https://www.iphonefaq.org/archives/971026    Of you could FaceTime for 5 hour 20 minutes on one Gig more or less.   So for me doable until Xfinity Mobel gets their act together on non comcast Wifi.

That varies on how long you're Facetiming. You can view previous data used during Facetime by following this order path: 

 

settings -> cellular -> Facetime
