    How much monthly bandwith are you using?

    Hey guys, was just wondering if one or a few of you tell me an estimate of what your general use every month in GB could roughly be, my line now is about 2.4MB, and about 700's for upload speed and wanted to hear from a few of you are using, so I could maby upgrade to the right plan as they only offer plans from home residential to business service all with a bandwidth cap however I think one of the higher bandwith plans might be more than enough to run mj-12 on a fairly steady basis.

    Belgium sucks... I have a 10Gig up/ 2Gig down monthly limit with a 10Mbit speed

    Moving over to another provider soon... found one that has unlimited up/download with 3.3Mbit capped speed

    Comcast freaked out when I was running 4 rigs 7x24. They said I was using over 1TB / month, and either I backed off or they would poke my eyes out.

    Ok thanks guys for that it really helped alot. My isp connection is really fast and I get way more down and up bandwidth than they put in the plan, I ran it for a day and chewed up 30GB. This plan only has a 60GB limit, so for now I will run mj-12 full blast x2 machines the last day of every month, wouldnt want them getting away with me not using my ammount that I pay for lol.

    Turns out I was greatly mistaken about my isp's plans, they dont have one that comes close to what I would like to use then. I for the life of me can not find a fast isp with unlimited use on dsl that has service for where I live. And I dont want cable as there's a good reason for that

    Yes, but he meant the whole month, not just the first day of each month!

    Unless your downloading constant movies, thats impossible.. I move ALOT of stuff and in a month with mj-12, i didnt even use a TB yet... and my connection is 29 times your T-1...


    and btw.. those totals are from only one machine.. Multiply that by 5 for actual monthly bandwidth.

    Well.... I remember been capable of 222KB/second on a 2Mbit down line (88% capcity of advertised). I was able to rape my way through my 20Gig cap in a weekend with Majestic 12 on and off.

    So on my 2Mbit down thats 222KByte
    So 222kBytes/1024 x 60 x 60 x 24 x 30 = 562,464 MBytes per month. or (divide by 1024) 549.281 Gigabytes per month.

    Now to the gent that takes down 1T a week , 1T a week is 1024 Gigabytes per week... so that is 4.33 weeks per month therfore 4433.92 GB per month. So 7.88 time the sped of 2MB at full blast/usage?

    Are my sums correct!

    EDIT: According to answers.com T1 is only 1.5Mbits/sec.

    Hmmm whats that smell in here! I think its the smell of xtreme BS!

    You are pretty close on your numbers riptide, I think the order is for T1 is right around where you said, T1 then E1, cable, T2, but I do belive that a T1 could maby strech into cable starting around 4Mbps.

    I am on dsl and getting a good solid 2.5 down, and sometimes 700 up (mj-12) only it seems. which puts me into a standard of whatever the hell E1 is or starts at lol.

    How about that T4 I found on the net 274Mbps I would think you would have to be sitting on top of the isp and in the right location, man that would be smokin.

    Edit:Lamfear, we would be glad to have you, you can head to mj-12 home page via google and sign up there, and join xtreme systems on the join a team section on that site, or shoot Haltech a pm he's the leader of mj-12 or ask here in the mj-12 section and I'm sure someone will be along to help you. Also if your into donating your spare cpu cycles to find cures for diseases, check out our wcg project section or any of the others in the forums, we could use all the help we can get in any of these projects, mj-12,QMC, Wcg, Sob,ect..

    Riptide is pretty close. T1/E1 = 1.544Mb/s. I am on a DS3/T3/E3 = 44.7Mb/s

    *note: European versions are alittle higher as they get 32channels vs. the US's 24channels.

    If you really want to see how much you use it, download dumeter (www.dumeter.com). I've had it running since last night so we'll see

    Oh man,
    We have a cap of 15GB here. I always thought that this would be way too low for even the most basic users, but providers here in crappy Belgium don't seem to care. They even list 15GB a month as a "premium" service and charge about as much for a 'lite' version of max. 400MB/month...


    I hate this country !
