    I did Google search before and it seems some have it and some don't. I know I used to have it.

    With PRTG I can get a Rolling 30 Days of bandwidth usage so far in the last 30 days which I would say is probably fairly average usage for me I am at:

    FIOS (Primary) - 41.340GB Down / 84.804GB Upload for a total of 126.145GB
    RCN (Backup Only) - 1GB Down / 62MB Up for a total of 1.153 GB

    This is taken from the SNMP Data at my Firewall / Router since my FIOS Router doesn't support SNMP (at least for me) my router has been replaced recently so the data in it isn't useful at this point.

    TW doesn't have a limit (Yet, hope it NEVER comes), but still check it using my Router's (Netgear) software. Varies by month. Sometimes as low as 100GBs, sometimes as high as 300GBs.

    How are you uploading twice what you're downloading? Or do you have those numbers reversed?

    The other set of numbers looks more reasonable.

    Not sure that FiOS lets you track it.

    As I've mentioned before, I LOVE FiOS (Voice - FDV & Internet)

    Comcast's current-month meter and 3-month hist-o-gram can be found under the [Users & Settings] tab.

    My monthly usage is all over the place, but I estimate an average of slightly above 100 gB, streaming movies, surfing the web and email. Well under Comcast's 250 gB cap.

    Nick, does your screen have a little box right under the usage meter saying Comcast is suspending the 250GB cap indefinitely?

    Yes (see above), but it doesn't say "indefinitely".

    No this is right, since I have the FIOS 40/40mb plan it allows me to use my HD Slingboxes with excellent results and use them often. I can also watch movies stored on my home Media Server anywhere through a VPN Connection without any hiccups provided the connection I am on can support the bandwidth which is nice.

    Keep in mind the RCN Numbers are for the Backup / Failover Connection only. I have a Routing Policy that prevents any Slingbox Traffic from going through that link unless the primary fails. The Backup Connection is only 20mb / 2mb which just doesn't cut it for my Slingbox to provide HD.

    Per Comcast:

    I'm always startled at how little we're using.

    I guess those animals doing cute things YouTube videos my wife streams every day aren't very big. I do download software and upload to our web site.

    Then I think about when I thought I'd never see a 1 MB file....:sure:

    I have a 50GB, $1 per gig after, cap on my 50mb connection and unlimited on my 20mb connection.

    I use the 50 and the family splits the 20.

    We average about 180gb a month

    We use about 15-20GB each month. Not much movie streaming, only the occasional VOD download.

    Peace,
    Tom

    It's not surprising to me that, as of this date/time, over 70% of respondents burn less than 150gB/mo. I peaked out at 164gB last year after one month of watching every HD movie I could find on Netflix/Amazon, trying to crack the Comcast cap. :whatdidid

    I tried, but I just...couldn't...do it. They beat me like a rented mule :crying:

    Time Warner has a site where you can check your bandwidth usage.

    I'll go anywhere from 1 to maybe as much as 10GB/day - and I think my 'worst' day was somewhere in the 100GB range when I was restoring a library from a disk corruption.
