This is a sub-selection from 30 Terabytes?

Re: 30 Terabytes?

30TB in one month would require a 100mbit/s connection. Well 97mbit/s and change to be precise. He says he has a 40/5 connection, so this amount of data usage is impossible even if he had the connection pegged in both directions 24/7.

Clearly the number is inaccurate, as one should come to expect, both from some forum contributions, and software-based meters that trace their days to the butcher's-thumb-on-the-scale.

But we've seen here that there *are* members who intentionally "peg" their connections, which is not without consequence for all of us.

Oh, for sure. I know people who do it just to be spiteful. It's actually quite a shitty thing to do to BOTH ends of the connection, IMHO. I'm the guy who pauses Pandora if I step outside for five minutes, and I have an unlimited connection. No reason to waste a shared resource.

I don't bother pausing Pandora, but I do try to do my heavy downloads after midnight even though my ISP does not slow down during prime time.
