    I always hit my max cap of 40gb monthly and generally go past it a fair amount. On average, I'd say... 60'ish monthly. so about 2GB a day

    In a month we normally use about 5 - 6 GB of our 10 GB bandwidth cap.

    About 100MB-1GB per day using my home connection (384kbit/128kbit adsl) and about 10GB per day (mainly backups from servers) using 3 load balanced 2mbit/256kbit adsl lines.

    I've no idea, although I don't download much so I can't expect it to be too high. Regardless though, I don't have a limit so it's no real worry.

    DU Meter tells me I used 11.09GB in August 2006. So far today I have used 258.71MB.

    We have a 50GB/month cap on 8Mbit ADSL. Never managed to hit it though.

    Many DSL providers including ourselves have implemented this. People don't want to pay a fortune for internet access, with current speeds in the UK allowing EU's to burst to around 8mbps it's not financially possible for a company to keep a low price point and sustain high quality of service on their network when users have unrestricted access.

    We probably do about 400GB/month from our DS3 in the office.

    Depends really. If I haven't got any exams, then I download about 1GB to 5GB a day.
    I use an 8mbit adsl connection at home (no cap), and sometimes use the 100mbit connection at University (in which case I download more than 20GB in that day)...

    I have no idea. Don't have a cap on my Roadrunner connection, so I don't need to pay attention to it.

    Usually average 20-30gb per month - last month I did 45gb and I got slapped by my ISP with a connection limited to only 128kbps between 4pm & midnight (I have 8mb ADSL) so suffice to say I'm looking somewhere else for my connection

    I really don't download much at all, 200MB a week maybe?

  27. #27
    200 MB a week is just too low, may be you just check your mails and surf some random sites thats it

    Ah, a fellow PlusNet user

    Personally though, i'm very happy with them.
    They've made it quite clear that there is absolutely NO limit on what you download outside of Peak time (4pm-midnight).

    So the 20gb during that time is fine for browsing, gaming and some emergency downloads, but set Windows Scheduler up with your download program to only run midnight - 4pm and you're laughing

    For the price, i don't think there's any ISP that would allow me to download 300gb a month

    They wouldn't be so bad if:
    a) The limit I had originally been paying for (30gb) between 4pm till midnight wasn't cut to 15gb (and then later increased to 20gb) with no reduction in my monthly fee
    b) They didn't start applying restrictions to your connection after only 13gb of the 20gb - that works out at something like 420mb every day between 4pm and midnight before they start limiting it, not exactly all that much when they always advertised the connection for "heavy internet users".
