These days you won’t find many people in your house that aren’t connected to the Internet at almost all times of the day. Whether they’re streaming music, playing video games, watching television or movies, or updating their Facebook status that they’re doing the above things. The thing is that the whole time you’re downloading or streaming, you’re using up precious gigabytes and many service providers put a cap on your monthly usage. In order to find out how many gigabytes per month you’ll require, you need to devise a strategy.
Obviously to know how many gigabytes you’ll need a month, you’ll have to know your usage. 1GB is about a thousand Megabytes and here is what most common applications eat up:
Streaming audio = roughly 60mb per hour
Streaming video = approx 400mb an hour
Watching a movie = approx 700mb
Playing a video game online = 40 to 80mb an hour
