My usage

Blimey! I’ve just looked at my usage for this month and it’s a whacking 176gb!!
Last 3 months have been 48, 98 and 68. Guess it’s the kids being on hols for two weeks and knocking seven bells out of Netflix!

Re: My usage

My usage is quite low this month actually, even though I've been downloading on Xbox and using Netflix.

Re: My usage

On average we struggle to use 16Gb. WhenI say struggle I mean I visit the same sites daily, do a few google searches (plus a few google image searches) and thats about it. I didn't think SQMBO was a big user either but somehow we use 16GB between us  Shocked
I could easily live off a dongle though.. weird or what?

Re: My usage

Any positive number in there would mean it wasn't unlimited however I believe something is to be done about it.

Re: My usage

At one point I was a heavy user, running BitTorrent on one box 24/7. One ISP phoned me years back to say I was using so much traffic ('unlimited' package) that they were penalising me by lumping me in with other heavy users for 7 days, which was painful.
A short spell using a PAYG Vodafone dongle (£15 per Gb  Shocked) quickly put my usage in check. Currently I am using about 55Gb pcm with PlusNet which is pretty low as I am unlimited and PN actually seems to be properly unlimited. I am not yet running Steam though and thus not downloading buckets of games, and I am not using P2P a massive amount right now. Once I switch back to old usage patterns I would expect my monthly usage to be around 3x what I currently use.

Re: My usage

Bit confused...
Are we trying to beat the lowest or highest usage here Undecided
Almost 130GB in 7 days.

Re: My usage

I was cheering simply because I feel lame only using 55GB pm on an unlimited package. Your 130 in 7 days makes me feel emasculated.

Re: My usage

What on earth do you guys manage to send back and forth to use so much data?
I couldn't even think of stuff to download that could use that much bandwidth!

Re: My usage

Some of the stuff I download on Xbox is quite big, couple of gigs sometimes and that's even demos and not full games, and streaming on Netflix and YouTube uses a lot of data.

Re: My usage

Ah yes forgot about youtube. I must confess to using that a bit too but not as much as I used to.
