How much do you download a month?

44 replies
Found 8th Mar 2010
Don't want to know what you download just the amount.

What ISP are you with and how strict are their download limits/fup?

I think I probably download about 60gb a month but am well aware that some people download in excess of x10 this.

me too - though I have no idea how you would download a ds game so your doing better than me! My brother is always giving me movies he has downloaded off the net and I would never know how to do that!

Just songs and thats it.

about 40gb a month with bt-never had a problem with them.

just by looking at websites you are downloading information so it's prob more than you think

Probably about 1GB on a quiet month..

If i want a few films maybe up to 5GB?

Has been about 30GB one month after downloading blu-rays.

if anyone is downloading 600gb a month, they a probably a pirate movie seller

I have unlimited so i dont check ( i know when i had 30gb limit i was often over that)
1gb a day, with a bit of radio, iplayer, video chat is around what I use, but I'd hate to have to keep a count like before

Normal month... probably about 10GB (despite having an unlimited usenet and ISP connection)

Currently, probably about 250GB pm. New media Server to fill.

BeThere 16Gb connection.

What speed connection do you have? When Im away in a couple of weeks...... my account is going begging!

around 100gb probably...it all adds up football streaming, gaming, youtubing and then downloading mass effect 2.

Mine tends to get limited after using it too much

What isp are you with? Unlimited downloads?

Im assuming they arent full blu ray rips as they can be easily be over 50gb per film.

i've got a free bandwith monitor on my laptop and it's telling me how much i'm downloading a day, it's quite shocking! (especially as i play farmville, that uses loads :oops: )

EDIT: forgot to say that that is with me not physically downloading anything!

about 250gb per month

I work for an isp and have seen this quite regularly.

Like I said 50gb can be one blu ray film. Thats only 12 films a month.

Easily done!

Virgin just told me i used 240 last month and 320 the month before. I blamed it on the kids :whistling:

Its in the reply.... "Bethere" Currently about 250GB per month.... but thats just the last 2 months. Prior to that, probably 10GB, maybe a bit more... in fact, who am I kidding! Make that 50GB.!

No warnings... and no need to be. I think their FUP is set to about 350GB..... but I know people go way above that too.

google "free bandwith monitor" and you can check what you are using, it's only a tiny download to get the monitor but it's interesting to know what you use. things like bbc iplayer will use lots too
i have to be carefull at the mo cos silly talk talk turned my unlimited broadband into limited, grrr! switching at the mo so i'll be back to unlimited soon, yay!

Yeh... I think I fooled myself there! There definately will be months where I havent logged into usenet and therefore no real downloads... but i do usually grab a few bits. At the mo, ive gone a bit made and way above the norm. That said, I'm still only grabbing stuff in patches. I had about 200GB in a queue the weekend before last alone! This weekend was only 30GB. And since i'll be away... i have some advanced downloads to do to make up for my absence! :-D

800Gb a month, around 5Gb of that is non-porn material.

Funnily, there are no BRs on it. Most are MKVs though. I cant watch stuff that doesnt have a good picture, but I'm not into the hype of BR.

....probably not the best idea for everybody to advertise the fact that you all download songs and films. just a passing thought??

How many do you have now/how much storage?

Im going to guess round 8TB!

Must admit I am a bit of a PQ snob, rather watch a crap program in HD than a good one in SD.
