Does World of Warcraft count as Download?

40Gb USAGE on Broadband Package??
What exactly is 40Gb - I know the advert states 8,000 itune downloads and 132hrs. of TV per month.

But does playing the online game World of Warcraft count as a download?? The game is yours and loaded onto your PC but you cannot play it without being connected to Blizzard (to whom you pay £8.99 per month).

Can anyone tell me please, as my hubby (disabled) plays 10 hrs.per day and I do not want to change SP if he cannot do this.

it uses on average 10MB an hour and you play for 5 hours a day. That's 50MB a day (roughly), lets say a 30 day month. So 30*50 = 1500, roughly 1.5GB per month.

i've had it on just over an hour 1734.40kb in 8.4kb out.
