Streaming usage

What speed in bps (bits per second) does it stream at? From that you can work out what data will be transfered in a set time (minute/hour/day etc).

As an example here is a 128Kbs stream calculation:

128Kbs / 8 (bits in a byte) = 16KBytes/second *60 = 960KB/minute (~1Meg) * 60 = 57,600KB/hour (57.6Megs) * 24 = 1,382,400KB/day (~1.38GB)

So a 128Kbs stream running for a full day will download approx 1Meg per minute, 57Megs per hour and 1.4GBytes of data per day.

Streaming usage

It depends on the stream itself.

I listen to 96kbps streams, which use around 43.2MB on the PlusNet VMBU page (PlusNet sue a 1000MB in a GB figure).

What bit rate is your stream feeding at?

128kbps streams use 57.6Mb per hour
160kbps streams use 72Mb per hour.
