Spotify data gobbling problem
I was very pleased when Spotify enabled higher-quality 320kbps streaming on mobiles. However, I've encountered another problem and a very expensive one at that...
Having now become addicted to Spotify, I am listening on the way to work, at lunchtime, in the playcentre with my kids, in the evening (my TalkTalk router is a bit poor and 'comes and goes' at the top of my 3-storey house) and I'm getting through 1GB of data in less than a week.
I'm with O2 who don't provide unlimited data over 3G - they charge £10 per month per 1GB of data, which is a bit stingy.
At 320kbps I've calculated that a months data only gives me 6hrs 40mins of Spotify time EVERY MONTH - which is rubbish!
I'm noww cancelling Spotify Premium AND my top-whack data contract just to save some money as I've concluded that ordering CDs from Amazon is a much cheaper way to get music - and better quality.
Anyone else run into this data problem, and which mobile provider are you with if so?
