I have to say that several people are enjoying your radio. I walked into a friend's house Saturday morning and music was playing and she was very excited that you are broadcasting from "the theater."

Having it play in the background while surfing the internet is awesome. However, I do have a question. I prepay my data for 3g service on my tablet - it is my only source of internet. Does streaming your web show eat up lots of data like a You Tube video?

Words have power. Speak it into existence.

Hi and thanks for the input.

Actually I am not broadcasting from the theater, nor are we associated with it, other than we mention it as a courtesy on the community calendar. I am broadcasting from a dedicated studio in Tres Cocos.

To answer your question: No, It will not eat up as much as you tube, but if you have mifi from smart, it will eat up your allowance fairly quickly if you listen all day, everyday.

Most people only listen for a couple of hours a day, and you will be fine if you keep it to this. If you use the stream address on the site, this only sends the music and not the title, artist or album cover which will save you some data.

If you have a store or shop and want to play it all day, then a computer with a hardwired ethernet connection is the way to go.

Here is an article about it. The Breeze streams at 128kps.

Let me know if I can be of any further help.



Internet radio is becoming more and more popular and this has seen a rise in the amount of people who are listening to the radio via their computers. This includes live streams of traditional radio broadcasters as well as music sites such as Pandora. A recent survey has indicated that internet radio usage in the United States around 60 million people listen to internet radio, a figure which is expected to rise to as much as 77 million by 2015.

Now that Google and Apple are launching their own online music services, the rise in internet radio usage is only going to keep growing in the foreseeable future, and that could mean a rise in the amount of people who are using up all of their monthly data allowance before the end of the month.

The downside to this popularity is the problem of data limits that a lot of broadband providers place on their service, and someone who wants to listen to internet radio for long periods of time each day, could very well find that they eat up their data allowance very quickly indeed. And if you are not careful, you will find you are going to get a hefty bill for exceeding your monthly data limit from your internet provider.

The thing about internet radio broadcasts is that they use more bandwidth the higher the quality is, and therefore that has a knock-on effect of using more data more quickly. Internet radio transmissions are typically downloaded in Kilobytes per second (Kbps) and the standard speed of an internet radio transmission comes in at around 128 to 320 Kilobytes per second.

In order to work out how much data your internet radio hobby is going to use up, you can use a simple calculation. If you download an internet radio transmission that comes in at 128 Kilobytes per second for 60 minutes then you will have used 57.6 Megabytes of data in that 1 hour. If you stream an hours worth of internet per day for 30 days then you would have eaten up 1.7 Gigabytes of data, and of course, the higher the quality of the broadcast, the more data you will be using up. For example, a 320 Kilobytes download will use up a whopping 140.62 gigabytes (should read megabytes) per hour and that works out at a data munching 4.2 Gigabytes of internet usage in 30 days. So as you can see, even for one hour per day for a month, you are looking at quite a considerable amount of your monthly data allowance being used each month.

With more and more companies imposing data limits on their internet services then ever before, it can be difficult for radio lovers to use the internet for listening to the radio for any length of time. That is why it is important to find a broadband provider that offers unlimited internet usage each month, and if you are not on an unlimited plan, and you love listening to radio via the internet, then now is the time to switch. There are still a number of broadband providers who have tariffs that include unlimited internet usage, however, these do come at a cost, and you are likely to find that you are paying more each month than you were on your limited plan.
