Sorry if i posted in the wrong forum i have no idea which spotify would come under..

does telstra or telecom disregard the data used via this or not? and if not how much data does it use?.. is it really worth downloading and using it?

thanks for your help.

Quality 96 kbps => 0.72 MB per minute. (Only in Mobile these days)
Quality 160 kbps => 1.2 MB per minute. (Free, Unlimited, Premium)
Quality 320 kbps => 2.4 MB per minute. (Only Premium at Desktop, mobile streaming in this quality coming soon)

So, assuming you streamed via desktop for 8 hours/day, you'd be chewing through around 1/2 GB/day.

No NZ telco zero-rates spotify as far as I'm aware.

It's worth using as long as you have the data cap to cover the length of time you'd want to use it.

It's totally worth it in my opinion. Keep in mind that Spotify uses caching, too, so if you listen to a song once chances are your computer won't be downloading that song the next time you listen to it.
