How much WiFi bandwidth does the Home Base use?

The Home Base uses less than 5 kbps.  For a 1 Mbps uplink, that is less than 0.5% of your bandwidth, resulting in virtually no effect on your internet speed.

    So how much does it use a day? A month? I'm going to be using mine on a smartphone MIFI. so total monthly use is important.

    Good question, Craig! First of all, we recommend using a more stable internet connection than a MiFi, but if you choose to use the MiFi frequently, you can email our support group so that we may help you get a sense for how much data you would be using for your specific case. Best, Dan
