2-4 TB/month

 

Plex streaming from my friends house (untouched Blu-Rays), CrashPlan backups to Friends house and online (In+Out) (new CCTV footage takes the most traffic), and various downloads for work and updates for equipment I test.
I also have another network for my flatmates on a separate VLAN and they use around 400GB/month of the total usage for 5 people hehe... 

 

 

 

We are on BigPipe and have never had issues with speed/latency when approaching multi TB/month cool

Since going uncapped I have not given it a thought. Maybe circa 500GB per month

go through about 500~800GB Per connection here a month (so 1~2TB) 

 

 

 

Personally all my heavy data requirements are on external servers were they will blow TB's a day without blinking..

 

I much rather to push this sort of usage away from the home so its clean.

 

 

 

Netflix takeup here is somewhat deflated by the fact that..

 

     

  1. few in the house are gamers, low latency behind lower upstream DSL links is kinda vital
  2. In the peak times, steaming may not be so consistant, depending on if a large update pipes through. This puts draw more on internal plex streams instead
  3. I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to streaming and well often aim to squeeze as much quality out which brings unrealistic RTM bandwidth requirements for the location.

 

 

 

if you want to strip it right down, 40~60GB a month is my nightly youtube on mobile devices alone..

 

Since pushing out to VDSL and multiple links, kinda pay less attention to usage is its just too much effort to look into!

200-300GB but that's only becasue our speeds are so horrible, if we had better speeds we'd use more.

But you're soon to use much more on your IPV8 MR connection.

I work from home, and it's just me and my son, but we still manage to chew through 300GB-600GB per month. We watch a lot of YouTube and Netflix and stream all our music. I also back up two large computers to an offsite company, so that would account for a bit. Yay for unlimited data.

250-350GB over 4G RBI :)





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour
