In his report entitled A Snapshot of Australia’s Digital Future to 2050, IBISWorld founder Phil Ruthven predicted that average data usage per month will skyrocket to 200 GB by 2020 and 5 TB by 2030. It shouldn’t be a surprise that increasingly sophisticated business functions will use more data. To start with, businesses make more calls than do households.
Fortunately, Telstra offers data monitoring services that help businesses stay within their data allowance. The Mobile Data Usage Meter, for instance, not only keeps track of your own usage but also that of your employees. The system immediately notifies as soon as you reach your plan’s monthly data threshold.
