40GB just isn't a very big cap in this day and age. Plans are aimed at the majority and watching TV online etc is becoming more prevalent. I average 250GB month (where most people watch TV I watch online video), I downloaded a game yesterday it was 32GB, movies in high quality can be 25GB,  I've managed 7TB in a month before so I am a bigger user then most although. It's very easy to go over 20GB though unless you just your internet to check your emails and the weather.

You are presumably on a legacy VF cable plan - what is your speed?

I'm on a VF 50/2Mbps cable (unlimited) connection - at that speed it doesn't take long to download 20GB (which is my average personal daily usage)
I would advise you to go to one of the new 80GB plans for starters - and upgrade to Unlimited if you need to.

I'll see if I can establish some sort of benchmark or upper limit of internet usage.
