    Hi, is the quality of a song downloaded from a legitimate site affected whether it's by WiFi or mobile data, or is the cost the only difference between the two..so apart from the cost to your data is the quality of the download the same regardless of the connection..thanks

    Welcome to iMore!

    The quality of the downloaded song is going to be contingent on the quality of the upload. If it's uploaded at 256 for example, then you'll get 256 if you download via WiFi or mobile data. The biggest thing that those 2 connections might impact with regard to that song is the speed at which it downloads.

    Welcome to iMore! If you're physically downloading the song to your device you shouldn't notice a difference. If you're streaming music, on the other hand, you may be getting a lower quality feed over mobile data than over wifi. It really depends on the service, and many have settings that let you choose whether or not to stream lower quality audio over mobile data. For instance, Apple Music has a "High Quality Streaming" setting.
