- Whats your household monthly data usage?
I’m on Sky’s “Unlimited” ADSL package, so when you go to their usage stats web page it says “congratulations, you have unlimited Internet and don’t need to know what your usage is!” Which is fine and dandy but makes it tricky when evaluating alternative offers. Which, I guess, might be why they do it.
I expect it’s quite high just because of the Xbox. A couple of demos and free games would set me back 10Gb, and when I go to the Xbox One that’ll go up considerably.
Oh yeah, and I forgot about the Sky catchup stuff.Posted 2 years agowoody2000Subscriber

Me – stream Spotify in the evenings, surf a bit
Missus – downloads the odd movie for the telly
Kids – who knows basically but involves Minecraft, Youtube, movies and Skypeing mates
Our average home internet stats are 160GB per month!
Thankfully unlimited and unthrottled

we get a letter from Virgin every 3 months showing how little we use the phone for the £17/month they charge.
It also includes some stats on data usage.
Some modem/routers will also show usage figures but the virgin superhub is pretty inaccurate.
 Cougar – it was modem, not an acoustic coupler – 9600 baud 😉
We were still using 1200 baud at work for TTY access to customer systems!Posted 2 years agosharkbaitMember

We’ve got 2 teenagers, we’re on a 250gig package from plusnet.Posted 2 years ago
All the usual streaming services, Netflix, spotify, Xbox live, YouTube hammered every day.
Got an email telling me we had used 80% of it about a week before month end in July and August. This is with them being out of the country for 11 days and in August.
Hoping now they are back at school it will reduce a little.
But it’s only £1 a month more for a the unlimited package which is where I see it heading.
it was modem, not an acoustic coupler – 9600 baud
No-one can possibly live at that speed!
My first foray into the Intertubes was a PR1ME minicomputer, the terminal on that talked to the terminal at 4800 baud. I remember the day we worked out how to hack it up to 9600, practically left scorch marks on the desk.Posted 2 years ago
