    My feeder has an upload of appr 50-150 bytes/sec. That is close to nothing. You can watch your own feeders coverage using dump1090 but local network only if you do not set up your own service like Virtual Radar Server. On FR24 site you get access to some nice statistics regarding your feeders upload, but not the exact aircraft that only your feeder reports to the database.

        If you want minimal data usage you should disable MLAT, it uses quite a bit more data than just uploading ADS-B data.

        Still that's only relevant if you are on a mobile data plan with limited volume (something like 2 GB per month or even less)

        Not sure how much the data usage is exactly, also depends how much plane traffic you have.
