Does anyone know the average consumption per hour of gameplay?

Or is it better to just stick to wifi only?

I was told as long as you are one the same LAN it does not use any data, but to use it while away from home it will use quite a bit of data.

Alright, thanks for the advice. I'm not going to bother with tethering remote play.

I read somewhere that it consumes an average of 750kb/s, so that would eat my data pretty fast.

That would breach my 5gb limit in only 2 hours.

Not only that but mobile data ping is pretty bad these days. You'd want under 20ms and right now my ping is like 80-500ms.

Here is a video of a guy testing it properly, results show that it could work but I would recommend it for games that aren't perfect input dependent.
