    How much data does streaming SiriusXM radio use? ...

    I'm just wondering what kind of rough bandwidth footprint we're looking at for streaming say an average hour of SiriusXM radio? Or similar audio data?

    I'm just interested in rough estimates. ;-)

    Thanks very much in advance,

    Depends on the bitrate of the stream. At 128 kbps, you would consume 16 kB/s or 960 kB/min or 57.6 MB/h. At this rate, streaming 2 hours per day every day of the month would consume about 3.5 GB. At 64 kbps you would use half as much data.
