How much is a MB?
When you send and receive emails, transfer files or pull up web pages – you are transferring data. All the data that you send and receive online can be broken down into megabytes (MB’s). It is difficult to provide an exact conversion of data type to MB, because everything thing you send and receive is unique and may be either large or small, but we can provide a pretty good estimate based on typical usage. A MB is approximately 99 plain text emails, 3 emails with attachments, 5 web pages or 1 digital photo.
