3 Gb download limit

  manrow 17:08 05 Oct 2008

I am considering using an O2 broadband connection for my existing mobile as need this urgently and cannot wait for BT to install landline.

However they are quoting a download limit of 3Gb; as a 'normal' user checking emails and surfing for a job am I likely to hit this limit?

Not if you are only downloading e-mails however some game demos or videos can be over 1GB

The only times that I have come clost to 3Gb is when Microsoft bring out large updates such as SP3 for XP and SP1 for Vista, or if I have purchased downloaded software such as Roxio Easy Media Creator. These can be 750Mb to 1Gb each and as I have both XP and Vista I need to exercise care so that I don't go over the limit. This isn't hard to do as I can check my download amount via my ISP on a daily basis if necessary.

Turn off Pictures in your browser settings as this is counted in your 3Gb Turn of all Add's and pop-ups
