Network extender data requirements

I have very limited internet data availability. The LTE Network Extender requires an internet connection to operate. How much data will the network extender use in day to day operation?

From the LTE Network Extender v1.7 User Manual:

The 4G LTE Network Extender must be connected to an available LAN port on a router or modem with always-on Internet access with a minimum download speed of 10 Mbps and an upload speed of 5 Mbps.

The actual data used will depend on the number of calls/texts you have.  If that is all you're using it for, then the data usage should be relatively small and sporadic.  You would probably have to monitor your internet connection data consumption prior to the extenders' installation and after to see the actual difference.

Who is your internet service provider and what speeds do you have?

Is WiFi calling an option?
