Every day I play pokemon go for 2 hours. I use to have a data limit of 2 GB on my iphone. Last month I reached this limit much earlier then ever before. My provider has statics of my data use on 15th of June my data usage / day got 10 times higher then before. After some investigation I discovered Pokemon go is using 100MB/hour.
I have reinstalled the app, reset cached data and reached out to support. The only answer from support is they related the information to some team. I hoped the new version 0.213.0-A-64 would solve the problem but the data usage is still the same.
I have done some calculation and if my position would take 10 bytes, it could be send 3000 times/second or someone could send 280 books in 100 MB. Today I was outside with a friend and he uses 66MB/hour. It is significant less but still a great amount of data.
Have installed Pokemon go on android and the data usage on my account is approximal the same as on my iphone.
My impression is Niantic Support is not going to help so has anyone here a tip what I can do about it except play less. I have 115 in game friends, could this be the cause?
