    So how much do you download in an average month.

    seen in another forum that some guy d/l 280GB in 1 month, so how much do you d/l, excluding normal net surfing, just films, music, tv legal or otherwise.

    Probably 100gb or so, depends on releases though

    I tend not to bother for weeks, then go mad and have 2 or 300 GB in the queue. Bit like binge drinking really!

    Not so much lately, but I've downloaded 30GB overnight before.

    Just looked at my router in 39 days of being up I've downloaded 164GB (o2, never had any grief) iplayer, skyplayer streaming and newsgroups. Occasional torrent

    Just checked, and since I started using Astraweb PAYG I've downloaded 1,215.01 GB, think I need to change plans, although some months I might not use it that much.

    Any boffins know how much you would need to dl per month to make monthly fee worthwhile over PAYG?

    depends on when you took out the plan, once i use my allowance up gonna try blocknews, cheaper and more data

    seems like a lot of people do 30 / 40 gb a week! I thought I dl a lot of stuff but I dn't reckon I get anywhere near that! What is the majority if stuff of of - lots of movies?

    About 20 gb a month, but no movies.

    About 3GB a month.

    Not that much these days but if there is some stuff im after I will get them in one go.

    When I had a netload account I done about 1tb in that month.

    84kb

    You must have folders like "My Documents" etc?

    @BB - Open My Computer > click on your harddrive > click the users folder > click your username. Then do what numptyj told you with your folder of media (if you have one!)

    Tried that but cant see anything thats been mentioned! Maybe it is because nothing is ever downloaded? I am so bad when it comes to technical stuff like this - but only thing I click to download is stuff from Itunes

    He has creatted that folder himself so you wont have it unless you named a new folder the same way

    @ BB - if you only download from itunes you can right click and view properties on your music folder as thats where everything will be.

    how do i see how much i have downloaded on mine guys, where are you getting these eg. 30gb stats from please

    Just pretend I didnt post in this thread please

    But maybe revive this download thread in 2/3 years when my son is in his teens
