Codec and Data Usage Information

Hello!  I am interested to find out what audio codec TextNow uses for its VoIP services, and what typical data rates we can expect.  What is the name of the codec TextNow uses? What is the typical rate of data usage (think kB / min or MB / hr) that the VoIP service uses?  How much data does a minute of VoIP talk in TextNow use? Thanks for your consideration!!

Hey Gavin! While I can't disclose the codec information, I can confirm the following:

1 minute of calling will use approximately 0.3mb of data

1 standard text message will use approximately 1kb of data or 0.001mb of data
