Broadband Internet

Fellow Nerds,

I am moving into a new place with my gf and we are planning to get 4G broadband internet. It is a home wireless base station. I have used them before and the download speeds are perfectly fine for what I need to do. (Play MMO's). I was unsure as to whether or not the 250GB cap on download in the month is something I should worry about. I don't know if WoW or Skyrim or XboX live has that much of a download? I am not an everyday 6 hrs a day kinda guy. Let me know what you think? Should I be worried about going over 250 GB?

No. When I had comcast's 250 GB limit, they had a page where you could check your usage. I used to stream netflix almost every night while my wife was downloading college courses. I also played xbox live/ PSN and downloaded games and the occasional torrent. I rarely went over 50 GB/month.

The most I've downloaded in a month is 160GB, and that was trying. You won't go over it unless there's a lot of users who all download a lot. The only way I would even come close to 250gb is if i downloaded my entire steam games collection. It's not something to worry about on a month to month basis.

I bet I stream at least 250GB of porn a month.

Unless you're torrenting a ton of poo that's coded for quality (BD quality shows) you probably won't cap.

Multiplayer online games won't cap you out.
