Re: [BC] TELUS High Speed Turbo 25 Usage being reduced 50%

said by Symtex:

250GB is ~ 8G/day of bandwidth base on an 31 days month. that's not so bad. If you use 8G of Netflix a day, maybe you should go outside a little *wink*

Considering 1 hour of Netflix HD streaming with 5.1 sound takes 2.4 GB you may want to rethink that statement.

Throw in say a wife and maybe a kid or 2 who use Netflix, Youtube, download games off of Steam or Xbox and its easy to blow through the cap sometimes. This with the actual bandwidth being dirt cheap.

Edit: The Netflix streaming takes roughly the same as 1 Optik HD stream and Telus doesn't seem to be having problems handling 3 at once. Trying to drive people away from 3rd party solutions perhaps?
