How much per month if you don't mind me asking?

Also how fast? Have you tested the speed?
5GB a day doesn’t provide for a ton of streaming.

How do you have FIOS?
I thought that was sold to different provider?
We had VeriZon FIOS in FL and was sold to Frontier

That's assuming you watch every day. If you skip a day, that would 10gb the next day. If all you do is stream, it may be an issue. It all depends.

Not about streaming totals

Bought my sister a Roku Express in March to replace an older model I had bought her a year or so ago==
This one has now burned out (we think)
No response when she tries to reboot it
Think likely the HDMI port runs too hot for it to be plugged in 24/7 so while I will get another one and program some of my subscription channels for her to use, I am asking her to unplug from her tv when she is not going to watch

I read several posts on Amazon's reviews where people complained about their sticks dying fairly soon and that the plug tips when taken out of the HDMI port were very hot
My sister's tv is older and she has only 1 HDMI port to use
