I have just purchased a Model 01525P, I need to purchase a Internet package for the location where it will be installed. They told me it uses about 450 M bites a month, when connected to Weather Underground. I want to make sure I get the correct internet package. Does any one have real time info on how many M Bites you are using each month?

Hi Mel,

The Bridge will use approximately 450 MB of data each month whether you are connected to Weather Underground or not.  Streaming through Weather Underground is done on My Backyard Weather and not directly from the Bridge so it will not increase the amount of data that is being used.

Hi Mel,

The 1525, is not a bridge.  However, the data used will be approximately the same or possibly less depending on if you keep the display and the computer running continuously for the online streaming.
