How much traffic is there to expect when sensors at a remote location access the internet over a mobile router with a Sim Card?

It depends on which one and if it goes into sleep mode. Nevertheless, Supla devices generate relatively little traffic.

We have 4 energy monitors MEW-01 and 4 temperature sensors THW-01.
In total They create a good 100mb of traffic within 24 hours. This seems to be fairly high.

MEW is an exception here. It sends data every few seconds.

So you think that the traffic generated by the 4 MEWs in our case is in within an expectable range?

100mb (mega byte ?) = 100 * 8 * 1024 / 24 / 60 / 60 = ~9,48Kbps
1 Mbps = 1024 Kbps.
As you can see, with the speed of internet connections counted in gigabits per second, this is a small amount of traffic.

Question was about the usage not throughput ;)
Based on my rough calculation that is totally possible to have usage 100MB per day. Though I had 4 sensors sending data every 10 seconds and didn't get that high usage, rather half of it, I would guess that one call to server can be ~5KB, so depending on frequency of calls and content could be 100MB.

Below are the stats from my UAP. The first on the list is a laptop.
