I have 40 gb.of download capacity-how do I calculate how long in time that gives me?.
If you are talking about how long downloading 40GB using full bandwidth, that can be easily calculated provided your sync speed is known.
If you are asking how much general browsing, email, searches, &c you can do, then te answer will depend on exactly what you do. 40GB will last a month easily for someone who just browses, send/receives email, downloads the occasional image or text file. But if you start downloading films, or large numbers of youtube clips then it will be eaten away rapidly. Download a copy of TBBmeter from http://www.thinkbroadband.com/tbbmeter.html
and install it. Then you can see how much you ave used on any particular day or hour.
