Re: Typical Customer Data Usage

How do you guys get the usage tracker to work?

Mine has always said this:

You're talking about something different than I am. I don't care how much you download, I'm talking how fast can I download that game or expansion

this is the mentality all isp's try to sell SPEED. people fail to see actual data usage.

what game sites allow you to utilize your full 50Mb connection??
for that matter how many sites period allow it

said by Fleeced:

The people who do a lot of downloading/uploading are just using more of their connection for longer periods than I am.

the avg/most internet users use netflix, youtube, ps3, xbox, online gaming which NONE of these sites/services utilize no more then 3Mbps. these same sites would never go above/allow 5mbps let alone 50mbps

You just don't know how to use a connection. Adult sites can help fill a connection legally. A sub to Brazzers for example and you can use over 400 GB a month if you d/l all the 1080p scenes they release in that month. Manwin outputs a ton of content, and as they use 1080p MPEG-4 @ 12 Mbps as the standard for their HD scenes each scene is typically around 4 GB in size...

The big XXX networks all output >150 GB of new content each month.

Steam's got some mighty big games on their service. If you ever have a HDD crash and need to reinstall all your games from the cloud that number can get into the TB's.

It's not true that Netflix never goes above 3 Mbps. Netflix's new HD streams are now 7 Mbps. 1080p videos on YouTube average 5 Mbps, as do 1080p downloads from iTunes. And 4K videos on YouTube are encoded to 20 Mbps.

Requirements

Netflix Super HD is included for free with your Netflix membership.
Netflix Super HD requires an internet connection with at least 5Mb/s download. Not all devices can play Super HD. Super HD is only available via Internet Providers that are part of the Open Connect network.
Click here to see the full list of supported devices.

so like me you also can not stream this, which is also 100's of millions of internet subscribers.

they do not simply put after compression its not even that,,,sorry.
itunes??? can you max your d/l speed from itunes? i dont know i dont use it. now as for 4k video that is completly irrelavent. no consumer tv's that one could afford and to stream true 4k content you would need fiber period..

WRT Netflix Super HD, is TWC part of their "Open Connect" network? Your ISP needs to participate in "Open Connect" and you need compatible hardware.

My ISP is a participant:

Sonic.net 15M ADSL2+ connection

... but I lack compatible hardware.
