Hi there, I have been playing a lot of Minecraft latley and was wondering how much internet data would be used per hour, on a server of about 20 players. Note: I am playing on the server not hosting it. I know that the exact number is difficult to know but can anyone give an approximation.

Install something like NetMeter on your system and start playing for an hour... it monitors your network traffic and long as youre not doing anything else heavy while playing (downloading etc in the background) then it should give you a rough idea of how much data youre going through.
