Google Home Mini?

I recently acquired a Google Home Mini but have not yet set up the device.  Does anyone have experience with any of the the "assistant" products?

I am on the old Liberty 12 plan and my normal usage is under 10 gb but I don't want to hook up the Mini and find that my data usage has gone wild. I don't plan to stream music but would like to use the Mini for general tasks and am considering adding a smart plug if the data usage is reasonable.

Appreciate any anecdotal input, thanks.

Here's some basic information on smart devices from our blog, written by our own Brad!

I've looked for more specific information regarding data usage, it seems to jump around depending on how one uses it.  I haven't found any solid numbers yet.

Matt is there anything we can do about the slow response time when using Google home? I'll ask it a question and it can take up to 30 seconds to reply.
