      Using Skype with Base - will 1Gb download limit be an issue?

      I wish to use Skype and have the 1Gb download limit of Base. I assume that Skype voice calls use very little download data. I also assume that using video on a Skype call will use a considerable amount of download data therefore quickly using up my 1Gb download limit. Are my assumption correct? If so I will therefore have to upgrade to MAX.
      Is there any way of monitoring the downloaded data used over time so that one knows when the 1Gb limit is close to being reached etc?
      Any help/advice appreciated.
