High Usage

Sorry but I had placed this in the wrong section before.

For the past few months PN keeps charging us for going over our 2GB limit, when our use of the internet has always been pretty constant. A bit of surfing, emails and downloading, say 3 or 4 songs a month, so that the 2 GB limit always sufficed. I have now noticed, however, that usage goes up to between 200 and 500 mb a day on the days we have a nanny.

She likes to use MSN, ICQ and My Space a lot. Would these be the culprits?

If she's just using the chat rooms it wouldn't use much but if she likes to watch the odd video on My Space, for instance, it could easily up the usage

Ahhh Thanks.

So what would a typical 4 min video amount to?

it varies a bit depending presumably on resolution.
i just watched a 4min youtube vid and it was about 8MB, but yesterday managed to use a couple of hundred Meg on machinima.com in no time at all (one 5 min vid was > 80MB)

(my excuse? off sick during off-peak hours ...)
