hi all, i'm thinking of upgrading my daughters laptop to a netbook which has a built in webcam, the problem is, my daughter has a t-mobile dongle with 3gb allowance per month and i know that she will almost constantly be using the webcam on messenger etc ...
SO does anyone know how much a webcam would use of the 3gb allowance, as i dont want her to go over as its costly..
thanks...

also, she has a 12 month contract with t-mobile so she,s stuck with 3gb for a while yet..

Video uses a lot of bandwidth, remember both receiving and sending video will count towards usage, I suspect her 3GB might not last long. Try something like Netmeter click here to monitor usage.
