i have just had sky broadband installed & i have opted for the free version which has a download limit of 2GB.
somebody at work mentioned that viewing a web page could be classed as a download & surving could eat up my limit very quickly.

is this true or does download limit mean anything you save to your computer?

It is everything - browsing plus downloading.

am i correct in saying (i know this sounds thick) that there is 1000kb's in a MB & 1000MB in a GB?

I have a 2Gb cap, but have never exceeded it. I am on net every day for an hour or two, do a lot of emails, download Anti virus, spyware updates as necessary, download a few music files and other urtilities now and again but have never got near the limit. It is enough for general browsinhg as Vog & Fruitbat have said.

I spend a considerable amount of time browsing the web with occasional downloads and so far this month I'm up to 825MB.
I use the tautology bandwith meter suggested by VoG™ and think it very good.

All downloading, browsing, sending & recieving e-mails and uploading counts towards your limit.

2 GB! I can exceed that in less than 24 hours, lol

There is 1024KB in 1MB, 1024MB in 1GB, etc....

Companies state that there are 1000MB in 1GB, as it is easier (and quicker) to calculate

"2 GB! I can exceed that in less than 24 hours, lol"
