data usage

Technical Support
How much data does wow require to run in one hour time. Lets say the game is fully installed, I have no addons and I stay in the same zone. Just curious if I could use my phone as a hotspot and play on my laptop while I am at work. (Sshhh dont tell my boss!)
I know a fellow player that would do that. Don't know what the data usage was, but she would play for quite a while just doing profession or solo stuff. The connection wasn't the greatest so had difficulties doing group stuff.

If you are just questing and such. 30 to 60 megs an hour if all you are doing is questing. Roughly have not tested with BFA. Many cell plans count up and down so it could be a little more
