cellular data

The transmission of data via the carrier's cellular network. Cellular data is used for email, Web pages, watching videos, app downloads and software updates. Also called "mobile data," cellular data is measured and billed separately from phone calls. Text messaging (SMS) is also a separate service, although it is typically included as part of the phone plan (see carrier data plans).
