How Much Cellular Data Does Pokemon Go Use?


Does Pokemon Go use a lot of cellular data?
- Asked by Timothy L. July 18th, 2016


It has been estimated that Pokemon Go uses 5-10MB of data per hour. For some perspective, streaming an HD video uses around 350MB of cellular data each hour. In general, Pokemon Go is more of a drain on your iPhone battery than your data plan.

Based on the 5-10MB of data per hour estimate, if Pokemon Go used a full 10MB per hour and you played for three hours a day, you would exhaust about 900MB (or 0.9GB) of data over the course of a month.
