Smart phones and mobile internet have changed our lives. They have become an integral part of our lives and we heavily depend on them for our day to day activities. Despite that, mobile data usage on smart phones can be costly at times. Are you sick of the mobile internet fee’s? There are several measures you could take to minimize mobile internet fee’s:
1)Restrict background data
- Background data is all that internet traffic that goes on when you’re not actually using an app: email syncing, feeds updating, weather widgets and so on.
2)Stop Using the Facebook app
- Facebook app is one of the biggest consumers of data, not to mention its high resource use and battery drain.
3)Make use of offline apps, games and services
- Some apps and games require constant internet access to function: this can be simply a security measure or because they constantly need to retrieve data. There are some apps and games that don’t require internet access at all after the initial download.
4) Disable auto-updating apps
- If you have the Play Store set to auto-update apps, even over a data connection, this could be chewing its way through your allowance every month without you even knowing.
5) Identify and limit/remove high consuming apps
- In Settings > Data usage you can get a look at the apps which are consuming the most data both in the foreground and the background.
- You could remove the app, limit how often it syncs or prevent it from downloading attachments, all of which would reduce data consumption.
6) Don’t upload, download or send pictures or videos
- A single minute of high definition footage captured on a modern smart phone can take up as much as 200 MB of data. Single photos can easily exceed 40 MB.
In addition to these recommendations, If your mobile data connection is 3G you need to take some precautions. Here is why? Theoretically data consumption will be the same, except it will take longer time to do a task (loading email or downloading picture) on 2G. 3G makes difference while watching videos on Mobile. If you are using 2G the video quality will be usually 240p or less, however 3G will automatically select high resolutions like 340p or 480p. Which will increase the internet costs.

Amid fanfare and propaganda, in August, 2014, Qatar Airways announced it will launch a twice weekly flight to Asmara starting December 5, of the same year.
The launching of the flight was considered a concession to appease Isaias Afwerki the ruler of Eritrea who continually frustrated Qatar’s mediation effort to resolve the border issue between Eritrea and Djibouti.
In March 2014, Qatar Airways had announced the launch of its flight to Djibouti and the Eritrean regime immediately demanded the airline include Asmara on its schedule to prove Qatar was not favoring Djibouti in its mediation efforts.
To add pressure to its demand, in August 2014, the Isaias regime arrested a Djiboutian officer, Master Corporal Ahmed Kamil, who was accompanying Qatari officers who were monitoring the border as part of the Qatar brokered Eritrea-Djibouti mediation efforts. It accused the officer of being a CIA spy who penetrated the Qatari forces.
Soon, Qatar yielded to Isaias’ demand. A few days after the arrest of the Djiboutian officer, Qatar Airways announced its scheduled flights to Asmara in an announcement that had a striking resemblance to the one it issued on March 23, 2014 when it announced plans to fly to Djibouti.
To normalize relations between the two clashing countries, Qatar had embarked on a high-profile mediation. But its efforts have achieved little since the three-day border clash of June, 2008. Eight years after the clash, and years of serious mediation efforts by Qatar, has not resulted in completely ending the border issue between the two countries.
Yesterday, the state-owned Qatar Airways announced it will suspend its flights to Asmara exactly two years after it was launched, and flight QR1443 that was supposed to fly to Asmara out of Doha on December 4, will not operate.
