Mobile data plan is a good alternative for this, but it is not always useful. Though it may be fast, but due to the limited usage policy (there are unlimited plans too, but are usually slower and unreliable) of the Network operators, we can’t use it according to our need and desire. We always have to fear while using the data, as we normally do not know how much data we are using at an instance. Some of us may have the feeling like hole in pocket, due to the unchecked usage of the mobile data. For example- if you have a mobile data plan of 2 GB, and you are downloading some files which are hard to calculate exactly, you can have a help by setting mobile data usage limit in your Android smartphone or tablet. This can be however, solved by the restricted usage of mobile data, which can be enjoyed in the Android smartphones.
