How to compare IPSTAR Broadband nbn Sky Muster Plus Plans
With IPSTAR Broadband nbn Sky Muster Plus some activities are still metered and have a monthly data allowance. These include video streaming, virtual private network and all unclassified usage(1). Everything else that is not one of these 3 is unmetered and won’t count towards your data allowance.
So how do you choose the best plan then?
It’s simple, you simply need to figure out how much video streaming and VPN data you expect to use in a month. Then use this usage amount to compare nbn sky muster plus plans from IPSTAR Broadband to get the best one for your needs.
Most people don’t use a VPN that much unless you work from home and need to access your office servers. This type of data is mostly data being used for emails, web browsing and chatting online and that’s all fairly small, however, it does depend on the type of data you use. If you’re working from home using a VPN and need to know how much data you need, a good idea is to ask your IT team at work, they’ll be able to help you figure out the right amount for your VPN needs.
Where users typically use a lot of data is through video streaming.
Everyone loves to stream their favourite TV shows, films or sports when at home relaxing and this requires quite a bit of data. Luckily, all IPSTAR Broadband nbn Sky Muster Plus plans do accommodate most people’s video streaming needs.
We have a very helpful data calculator right here which can be used to calculate how much data you need. However, an easy way to calculate it is if you know that Netflix uses 1GB per hour for standard definition video streaming and 3GB per hour for HD video streaming on average (see full details here). Then you simply calculate how many hours you usually watch video streams in a month and then simply divide the total amount of GB by the number of hours you stream to find the perfect plan for your household.
