1. Disable Windows automatic updates
2. Disable images on browsers
3. Use the mobile version of websites instead of the desktop version
Disable Windows automatic updates
Windows will search and download updates whenever there is an internet connection if the Automatic Windows update is turned on. This may consume unnecessary data when you have limited volume. You can do this manually when you have unlimited data, for example when you are in the office or when are connected to unlimited broadband internet.
Disable images on browsers
When you are just looking for text information like news, scores, etc., you can disable the loading of images that are not necessary. To disable image loading, follow the steps below on Google Chrome.
Use the mobile version of websites instead of the desktop version
Many popular websites have their mobile versions, which consume significantly less data when compared to desktop versions. The Mobile version does not load any rich content like high-resolution images, animations, flash content, videos, etc., thus avoiding a lot of data transfer. If you remember the website names, then just add “m.” at the beginning of the URL to get the mobile version of the website.
