      Hi Everyone,

      I have finally got a phone powerful enough to play poker on, but am limited with my monthly date usage.
      Pokerstars and Partypoker appear to use about 2-3mb an hour, but 888 (which is my preferred site) uses about 60mb an hour, which is way too much, but I cannot understand why just this site is so high.
      Does anyone else have a similar high data usage from 888, or is it just me.

      Many Thanks

      Are there display ads or fancy graphics or animations?
      How about sounds?

      If so, it may be that they are not cached locally.

      Perhaps a call to 888 tech support can provide you some alternatives.

      Best of luck,

      Thanks for the reply.

      888 graphically and sound wise seems no different, from the Pokerstars app, but your point about how things are cached might be the reason.
      I will contact their tech support as suggested.

      Many Thanks
