I got that figure of 3.3Mb/min from Pipex tech help as I was asking why my 1GB usage/month was 90% used in 3 days. Apart from gentle surfing and emailing( with two others)my listening to the BBC radio is the only 'heavy' stuff I do.
Initially he said that radio used about the same as surfing but checked another who told him that high figure! It did seem wrong but they 'should know'.
Hey, 50kbps is 50 X 60 per min which is 3Mbps, no? Pipex said 56kbps which does make 3.36Mbpm!!
Been away from this for a bit. You say that 1000MB is a lot of radio listening but at 200 MB/ hour(Pipex) that's only 5 hours and with a 1GB cap/month and 3 people using it that is nothing. Yes 1GB is also nothing(we were misinformed about what we would need)so we pay up for the extra. Thanks again for your input.
