Pricing of Data by Blocks, Its Influence on Consumption

We continue with our tests and analysis of different data rates in terms of speed, consumption and adaptation to different devices. Let’s clarify that they non-evidence standard, or made with certain standards or professional criteria. They are proofs that any user can do with the means at its disposal.
And that comment applies only to the analyzed case, in this, as in other things, generalize is not good. Simply expose it, he is that if you want us to analyze our usage or consumption data have some where to start.
It has happened to us this time see how it affects the pricing data by blocks in our data consumption. The pricing of data block consists of charging a minimum of data consumption by connection. That is, if an operator tells us that if the data block is of 256 kB It means that if we make a connection to one lower consumption to this be loaded on our notice these 256 kB.
How does this affect our Bill? It is difficult to make this calculation, it depends on whether the rate is flat, if you have limit daily, monthly or other. We are simply assessing how altered data consumption.
This method of billing is a priori more detrimental in short, that is, the typical mobile connections for a Twitter, FaceBook or a quick reference to the website. How have done test it then?
We have taken as a reference work with a laptop and modem 3 G, connections long in which the charging block priori should affect little. And in mobile have taken in principle a very favorable case, a HTC Magic with Android I say favorable because it keeps the phone in an almost continuous state of connection.

Results with 3G modem

We have evaluated in this case 33 connections with an average 19 MB traffic, in this case the total consumption is about 640 MB that with pricing by blocks us increases in a 1,2%. As we said a priori does not affect too much.

Results with Android and conclusions

We have analyzed in this case 38 connections with average traffic of 3 MB. As we can see the average is far from the 256 kB by which we are to talk about phones in a favorable case. Yet for a traffic of about 130 MB applying blocks is increased in a 7,2%.
So we see that for a phone in principle it works optimally with blocks have an appreciable increase. Not so aimed at data phones should have results poorer in this sense, as always, we hope to enrich the entry with the experience of readers. A Council? Care franchises with gifts of interesting facts in principle but which may be depleted before what we think.
