Harry here. If you’ve ever wondered how much data you need as a rideshare driver, you’re not the only one! Today RSG contributor Jon Knope takes a look at exactly how much data all of the top rideshare apps use and compares a few of the budget carrier options.
There aren’t a lot of requirements to become a rideshare driver, but after passing a background check and securing a vehicle, the next biggest expense for drivers is often their cell phone and data plan. Today, we’ll be looking at exactly how much data you’ll use as a rideshare driver – and compare some popular options for getting that data on the cheap.
How Much Data Do You Need?
