BIS: How much realworld value does its compression offer?
Here's an interesting tool. Bell Mobility has a page where you can compare data usage amongst a number of platforms. We all know that BB10 phones do not require BIS (the BlackBerry Internet Service) which means that data will not be as highly compressed as we were used to. So how much is data really compressed? Certainly text is very compressible, but binaries like mp3 files, videos, apps, and other such files are not very compressible, so in the real world does BIS make as much of a difference as you think? According to this calculator, not so much! I don't know where the numbers came from, but assuming that Bell has no real reason to pull them out of their wazoo, the comparisons are valid. Note that I slid the sliders fully to the power user end of the spectrum. YMMV.
My data usage is higher on a BlackBerry 10 device than on previous versions

it probably halves the ACTUAL use, so that if it suggests 2GB it actually uses 4... so you buy the 2GB plan and then have to pay out the a$s for an extra 2gb.
bell is a bunch of scammers.
