How much data should a 1 hour movie streamming from Netflix use? My At&t homebase bill last month was almost a thousand dollars. If this is going to continue I can rent movies cheaper. I have never used this much data streamming with other methods of internet connections. Why does the "HomeBase" use so much data? What can I do to reduce my usage when watching Netflix?

Compare this is legacy DSL 150G cap or Uverse internet 1T.
You could try watching Netflix in SD (1.5M) instead of HD (5.5M) to reduce your usage, SD is standard, lower picture quality especially noticeable if using flat screen TV. Not as bad if watching on s smaller tablet, laptop.
