How many movies can I stream with 15 GB on the evolution plan? I was told from 3 different representives at least 90 minutes a day on Netflix for 25 days before I signed up. When I noticed that my gb usage went to 4 GB from just watching 30 minutes of youtube and 3 quick updates on applications, I called and the lady told me I can only get about 3 movies with 15 GB!? Would love some advice and help please, thank you.

Sadly it does sound like they didn't quite know what they were talking about / didn't fully explain how they got that number. If you watch movies and manually set the resolution as low as you can yes you can watch several movies for the price of one good quality movie now as far as how many there are many factors that go in to that but again set the resolution as low as you can and you will be able to watch more but wpikd still wait till the end on the month and use your left over data at the end of month before reset

Thank you for sharing but I don't see how this is true. 30 minutes of GB, the first day of my plan, went up to 1.8. Yes it was low quality. No I not frustrating.
