Hey guys,

How much data do you use in a month? Do you check this at all?

I download/seed torrents from here as well as a lot of linux distros. I also download 1080p movies.
My internet usage per month generally exceeds a terabyte of data. However, this month's usage is currently at 1.8Tb's worth of data and I have decided to shut down my torrent client. Slightly worried I will receive a letter soon from my ISP stating that I am using too much. My ISP doesn't have a data cap here in America but they used to.

What are your thoughts? How much data do YOU use?

Love,
Luke

1.8TBS!
This billing cycle thus far has been 145gb with 11 days left and 270gb being my cap.  My deal for a year because I called and cancelled my service is up which means I have to call to cancel again.  Only now here in Canada we are no longer bound by their 30 day notice to cancel bullshit.  Hopefully I can figure out how to get away from these thieves this time.  Last year when I gave them their 30 day notice they cut services early, not the actual service but the ability to track usage and such.  I yelped fierce they wanted notice and then started cutting off service.  Then they offered me a deal that was only 1 cent more than the competition & I took the easy way. 


I don't even know where I would put a terabyte of data.

Erm, how much data do I use or how much bandwidth Smiley Some of the data I download doesn't get used Wink

But generally somewhere between 70 and 90GB downloaded but the upload total can vary tremendously. My ISP does have a 'shaping' policy but it is so generous I'd have a job to get it to kick in.

Not sure that is helpful, especially to people on limited bandwidth

I feel for you! I used to live in Boston and used my neighbors wifi. Super SUPER slow speeds. Like dial-up could actually compete and possibly beat my speeds.

I use a lot of data.  My cap is 300GB per month.  Last Month, (May), I used 1.1TB.  I pay $10 for each 50GB over my cap.  Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Torrents, and Tmobile Wifi Calling are my big uses, but mainly torrenting, lol. If I see a movie or clip I want, I get it, cap be damned.

I have unlimited, but am too afraid to looks cos it might frighten me. Not had anything from my ISP as yet so can't be doing too much data, but I stream all my TV, phone, music etc as well as all the DL bits.

yeah well you'd better carefully read your contract, coz I thought I had unlimited as well as it's sold as unlimited, but when you read the 20 pages contract then you realize what they call "unlimited" is actually limited.. They consider it's unlimited for a "normal , personal and fair" use... most ISP use that same legal garbage to make advertisement as "unlimited" when it's not...

Last month was just a tad over 10TB....yeah TB, not GB. My average is around 4TB though. After a few hard drive issues, I've had to slowly recover all the material I lost.

20~30gb a month for phone and 300~400gb a month for everything else ~

Used to have a 100gb cap (I think; around there) with verizon as my home router, switched to time warner and never got capped again

Sounds like someone needs a raid configured data storage NAS.
