- Quick question. BBC radio I player app.
To be honest if you’re using this while driving you may well struggle unless you only travel in areas with very good 3G coverage. Expecting the phone to constantly search, lock onto and download data on the move is going to eat battery, and provide a very variable service.
The data feed from the app is not great, but it will certainly drop off if you move into a low / no 3G coverage area.
According to the BBC website the iplayer app used for 60mins may use as much as 60mb of data.Posted 5 years ago
Does anyone know how long it would take to use up a 500mb allowance?
Solely from Internet radio use? Depends on the quality of the stream. According to:
You’re looking a meg a minute. So, about eight hours.Posted 5 years ago
For in-car use it’s almost certainly going to be a non-starter.
Have you considered a Spotify premium account? Tenner a month and you can download playlists over wifi for later playback offline.
Aftermarket DAB add-on will pay for itself in twelve months compared to Spotify, mind.Posted 5 years ago
