Re: [POLL] How much bandwidth do YOU use per month?

said by ztmike:

It must suck reallyyyy bad going from Optimum Online to Comcast.
Actually, yes it does. I was in Fairfield, CT when I had Optimum Online. They cut my speed once but when they realized that Fairfield had almost no activity I was allowed to go hog wild. Tis not better to have loved and lost.

I had to call Comcast to get my cable turned back on. They said in the month of August I had a total bandwidth of 520gb.

I am guessing I use 20-50 Gigs a month, mostly on distros, I use kNemo to track my usage and speed.

My All Time High was last June(I believe) at just over 31GB for a month.

There just isn't anything really worth downloading anymore.

Does DU Meter need to be on constantly for it to keep track of all the traffic going through our computer?

I've been averaging about 40GB a month this year. It goes up and down depending on how much I am downloading or how much time listening to radio streams, etc

Nigerian banking... SOL! I don't have a bank account.

Anime fansubs... *very* little anime that I can stand to watch - whatever language.

The intarwebs tubes are looking kinda crappy.
Ya know, unless something turns up that garners my attention, I may just have Comcast "demote" me back to a slower speed.

Yeah! It's that bad!

I download, watch, then delete.

I have enough space eating things on here(Blu-ray rips are HUGE!).
Porn loses it's... punch after viewing it, and viewing it a second/third/hundredth time is bleh.
Like reading a book the second time.

Did you ever see that bud light commercial where the guy is stranded alone on the island and he is granted 2 things first he imagines 2 wifes both nag him to death. Then he realizes like beer and a grill is all you really need.

No but it probably appeals to anyone that uses more than 50 Gb a month.

My Bandwidth monitor says I download about 120gb per month. While this past month comcast security contacted me about excessive usage of 485GB!! Then I looked on my router logs... seems like unauthorized entry into my wireless network..

Teach me to use WEP.. Time for WPA-AES.

I use 250-300GB per month on all 4 of my families PC's. I use Newsgroups and torrents to a very large extent on both my primary PC and my laptop. My sister uses relatively little bandwidth but I recently introduced her to Bittorrent so that will all change very quickly and my parents PC is downloading files from Emule 24/7.

DU Meter Totals by Month
My average as recorded by DU Meter is somewhat inflated because this, my primary PC, is on a LAN and DU Meter also counts that traffic as well from what I've observed. My vote is cast nonetheless.

Are some of you on different isps? I feel like this poll is flawed... Seeing how its in a comcast forum should be comcast users doing this poll. 30 people downloading over 400 gigs on comcast?! *sigh*

I posted here because it was front page news. But I did NOT vote in the poll as I have Road Runner and I understood the poll to be for Comcast users only.

Well Comcast told me I used 760gig last month. I am totally baffled by this. I mac address filtering on the router. I am suspecting it time to use a WEP type security as well. I can not see myself using 760gig in a month at all.

Does anyone have a suggestion on a router with gigabit switch hub and pretty good wireless setup?

WEP is weak... Use WPA, WPA2. MAC addy filtering can also be cracked if the one is determined.

MAC address filtering is trivial. The MAC address is in clear text in 802.11 frames. Wait long enough, and you'll find a valid MAC. I don't bother with MAC filtering or disabling SSID broadcast. I just use WPA2 with a randomly generated 64-bit hex key, which I rotate every so often

Results so far


I don't know 23 ( 7.0%)

under 10GB 37 (11.3%)
10-20GB 34 (10.4%)
20-50GB 47 (14.4%)
50-100GB 52 (15.9%)

100-150GB 35 (10.7%)
150-200GB 25 ( 7.6%)
200-250GB 16 ( 4.9%)
250-300GB 14 ( 4.2%)
300-350GB 8 ( 2.4%)
350-400GB 4 ( 1.2%)

over 400GB 31 ( 9.5%)


This borders on useful! Hasn't Comcast said that the abusers are in the "Top 1%?"

Removing the "I don't know" responses skews the numbers, but it still looks like 400GB or so is around the 90th percentile. Someone who is good in stats would have to tell me if that suggests that the 99th percentile is far off in the distance or something closer to 450 GB.

100 single-layer DVDs a month. That's a lot of downloading.

Somehow I doubt the BBR audience is a good representative cross-section of Comcast's 10+ million subs. Judging by the number of abuse complaint threads here, the top 10-20% of users seems to be unusually well represented.
