How much data is 1 gigabyte?

Good question. It's not as commonly known as it should be.

A gigabyte (1024 megabytes) is just a measurement of data. It's the standard amount we use here for purchases.

1GB can do many things, but just to list a few:

  • Send thousands of emails.
  • Upload about 3000 photos.
  • Stream about 15 hours of music.
  • Watch about an hour of HD video.

Now, these things always differ, depending on the quality, size of attachments, or even app.
