Re: Not bad at all...

said by ztmike:

I guess you never heard of a "networked home" Or updates/downloads for games. Or system updates/Linux downloads.
Having a networked home doesn't necessarily mean extreme usage though. My home network consists of:

- Home PC
- Personal laptop
- Work laptop
- Slingbox Solo
- Media PC (hooked up to projector by the treadmill)
- Firewall Linux box
- Xen development box (runs a backup server instance, mail server instance, home proxy server instance, a Nagios monitoring node instance, and test instances for my colo box hosting/mail OS images)
- PS3
- Ethernet connected Sat Receiver
- Linksys PAP2 VoIP gateway

For usage:
- I have a NetFlix subscription
- I download the occasional TV show .mkv when my normal DVR copy has issues (a couple local stations can't generate weather warning crawlers in HD, so they cut to the SD feed)
- I've downloaded YDL and Fedora for the PS3
- I update my linux boxen regularly.
- I backup to my home archival server, which rsync offsite every night
- I backup all my colo boxes to home every night
- I VPN in to work
- I use VoIP for all my home calls

I have 2 broadband connections, my Comcast usage stats are here:

I don't do anything to conserve my bandwidth usage, other than not running P2P and only downloading things I'll actually use.
