Long time lurker, thinker, and potential user. I’m probably doing more thinking and learning than I should and just dive in and experiment.
Has anyone logged how much data overhead you can expect per message while sending via an MQTT connection with a Hologram SIM? I know a message sent through the Hologram Cloud via a TCP connection typically costs ~500 bytes in overhead. My potential application is sending GPS coordinates at once or twice per minute, so cutting down on the overhead would be a huge data saver. @phogan @benstr @ChrisGammell any input?
I’ve read this thread SerialCloud.print data usage as well as the linked post on Medium by @ross Hologram.io Data Usage Breakdown but I have yet to see a quantified amount of data overhead when using an MQTT connection. I know this will probably vary based on which broker, but from what I’ve read MQTT is supposed to be a much more “light weight” connection on data usage. Just curious if anyone has any quantifiable numbers.
