In reply to a post by TheHorseman:
I've now had Infinity for a week and at midnight yesterday the checker was showing 95.83GB, we often have a couple of radio streams running, web browsing, email and some downloading. There are 3 computers running 24/7 though (not downloading 24/7 though).

Edited to add, Online backup service too which is still doing the initial backup.
I think I am right in saying BT count uploads towards the usage.

Not relevant to the FUP any more, but relevant to the reported figures. And very relevant on the 40GB options.

They do, and when they get fed up with that they do a lot of Linux installation work, those install DVD's are around 4GB each don't you know. However, it's none of our business what they use their internet connection for smile

I have been hearing the same old stories for years, ever since I was with PlusNet and they introduced the "bad boys pipe"

Probably and in the case of internet archive users legally too.

Yes, uploads are counted. The 40GB wasn't an option for me. The radio streams use around 1GB per 24 hours I think.

Seconded been on this board for years now and not so wet behind the ears as they say smile There will be some whom are whiter than white but the bare facts are that the sole reason for those downloading 100s of gigabytes of stuff every month has got sod all to do with legitimate use. Old argument anyway.

If you decide one night to have a marathon and watch a series of some TV show it can easily rack up plenty of gigabytes.

Downloading updates, game patches, music and all sorts does to.

Multiply it by 2, 3, 4 or more depending on the size of the household and it's very easy to see bandwidth disappearing

Depends really.

If there are several people using the connection it's perfectly conceivable to use that much completely legitimately.

and if I download a programme via Iplayer on one machine, and want to watch it on a different machine, the copy protection wont allow me just to transfer it, so have to download again
