    Hey Everyone,

    I want to install a 3cx server at my office.

    I would like to know if anyone has checked to see, the ratio between minutes and MBs.

    EG If I talk 3000 Min. on my cell phone how many MBs will it use via a UTMS network.

    Thanks a lot!!!

    Alon.

    My carrier does not have an unlimited plan.

    However they do have a 5gb plan, but it's abit pricey.

    I am only asking because I am tring to figure out if it makes sence or not.

    Well the easiest way is just to calculate it manually. With G711 the data rate is about 9kbs, but we'll say 10 for simplicity and to be on the safe side :)

    1024kb (1mb) / 10kbs = 102.4seconds
    102.4seconds / 60 = 1.7minutes
    So 1 mb is approx 1.7 minutes of talking on the G711 codec

    Based on Justin's figures, 1GB is around 1700 minutes, and 5GB is a lot of minutes.

    Remember, though, that you'll be paying for data for calls you receive as well as those you make, when comparing to a capped mobile plan.
