We have 1 Desktop PC, 1 Laptop, and two LED TVs at home which are connected under one Broandband Modem-Router(or Network).
I want to know, when we watch the Videos from PC or Laptop on our TV, does it use the broadband data?

Same way, when we watch the photos in the mobile to TV. Does it use the broadband data or not?

I want to understand, how exactly this works in terms of the Broadband data usage and speed.

If the media is being delivered from a local device to another local device, not, it won't use your broadband data. If it being delivered from an internet source, it will.
