I usually keep under my cap of 15G a month but could easily burn through that if i didn't restricted my beta gaming ;).

I just can't get teary eyed about all these people complainging of getting capped at 250G a month.

In the UK I would get through about 40-50gig of p2p however even if I tried there was no way I'd get anywhere near 100gb. The connection to do that kinda stuff just wasn't there... well it was, it was just wasn't p2p friendly.

Nowadays 10-15gig purely because I don't want to shell out more than $50 on b/band... kinda unfortunately really given all the online tv that's going to become available with sky shortly.

The most i'v done is 60GB (only done that twice) the end of mouth bill was something you don't want to experience not when your with Orcon!

3 laptops, 2 Desktops. 2 Windows and 3 Mac. (just doing some updates for Vista brought last nights download amount to 1GB !!! (no more internet for 3-5 days for me, just used it up on updates :( )

But lately I have been on 35GB a moth, purely because I can't afford to download anymore :(

<----- Where is my NZ flag gone? :)

just managed to creep over my monthly 15gig befor the end of the billing period (buggar) :( extra 10 bucks for 500mb because remainder of the extra 5gig block doesn't roll over (orcon) 

2x PC's and proly a few per month that i work on doin updates and installs (and p2p of tv / movies because wats on 1 2 3 or prime is rubish) if i could afford sky + ADSL i'd be sweet but i cant so p2p rules 

i'd love to see orcon stop including uploads as part of my montly allowance but that'll never happen

meh maybe 15gigs in a month but usually far less (4-5gigs)

But then I spend a lot of my time in a SSH session so it doesnt use much bandwidth :)  My wife only surfs a little and every now and again download the odd tune but thats it.
