100 MB to GB – What Can You Do with 100 MB of Data?

100 MB is equivalent to 0.1 GB of data and MB stands for Mega Byte. The smallest plan at US Mobile is 100 MB, and you have to be a light user in order to suffice with that amount of data per month, or remain connected to WiFi for most of your online activity. If you use lots of data, our unlimited data plan might fit you better.

What Can You Do with 100 MB?

As mentioned, 100 MB won’t be enough if you’re a heavy data user on the go. To give some perspective, 100 MB of data will be enough to:


  • Send and receive 100 text emails, including attachments.
  • Browsing the web for approx. four hours, without downloading pictures and videos.
  • Use Waze or Google Maps for one hour of navigation.
  • Enjoy streaming music for about 1 hr and 20 min.

Every time you connect to the internet, you’re using your cellular data unless you’re connected to a WiFi hotspot. If you want to turn off your cellular data when you’re on the go, do the following:

  1. Go to Settings – Cellular
  2. Flick the switch for “Cellular Data”, to turn it off.

Unlimited WiFi Plan*

Another alternative to making due with a low data plan is to get a WiFi Plan. US Mobile offers an unlimited Wi-Fi plan, which works in the air and on the ground. For $10 you get unlimited WiFi for a 30 day period. Get inflight WiFi.

    I’m not sure I understand. Is this saying that I need a WiFi plan to connect to my home and work WiFi networks?

    1. Eric,

      No, it does not, the WiFi plans allow customers to connect to millions of hotspots around the world so they don’t have to always rely on data plans. In addition to hotels, coffee shops, convention centers, etc., the WiFi plans will also work in-flight on most major airlines (at a fraction of the typical inflight wifi cost).

    Hello, does this mean that with 100 MB you can do all four things that you listed, or just one of them?

    Hello, will i need passwords for the hotspots with a wifi plan?

    1. Hi Lily,

      The WiFi plan is no longer available. We had a limited number of passes that sold out fairly quickly. But to answer your query, with the WiFi plan you had an app that would let you see available hotspots and connect to them without needing to enter passwords.

        1. Hi there, there is no constraint on how fast you can use the 100 MB, it is rather dependent on what content you are viewing/downloading. For example if you view a newspaper online, the plan should last for a while. But if you watch videos over internet using mobile data, that may consume the plan rapidly.

    Can I watch am episode of eastenders with 1gb of data ?

    1. How much data you use on streaming video depends on your streaming quality settings. On Netflix for example:

      Auto – stream to the highest quality depending on your internet speed (~3 hours per GB).
      Low – stream 4 hours per GB.
      Medium – stream 2 hours per GB.
      High – stream 1 hour per GB.
      Unlimited – if you don’t have an unlimited plan, you should forget about this option as it’s about 20 min of watching per GB.

      Now these aren’t hard and fast rules, but I think it’s a safe bet that one episode won’t be a problem. For more info check out Whistleout’s data estimator tool here.

    I have never had internet before on my phone, but now I have a new smartphone I am wanting to have the internet, but I really don’t understand it at all. I don’t use my phone very much, just the odd text or phone call. I really don’t know which plan would be best for me. I don’t want a contract, I am happy with pay and go. Any advice would be more than welcome

    1. Hi Anne,

      If you’ve never used cellular data before, it might make sense to start with 100-300 MB of data. I personally think 300 MB strikes a nice balance between affordability and longevity, as 100 MB just gets used up really quickly and then you’re forced to top-up. 300 MB per month should be just enough for the occasional Google search, some Facebook use, reading the news and maybe a couple short YouTube videos. Feel free to chat with us at https://usmobile.com or call +1 878 205 0088 for assistance with adding data to your plan.

        Hi – I do not see a 300MB plan available. The plans go from 100MB to 500MB which is a large gap.

        However, I certainly feel 300MB would be an ideal sweet spot to offer for us low data users.

        Will US Mobile offer a 300MB data plan soon?

        1. Hi there,

          We recently lowered our prices of the 500 MB plan to match it for the previous 300 MB plan, so customer can get more data for the same price. But we are always looking to bring more options for our customers that better suit their needs.
