With porn in HD now, game updates in the 100+mb range as well as software updates being 100+mb, its very easy to go though 100gb in a month if you let a whole household download what they want.
I can definitely understand that it is possible
to download 48Gb, 72Gb, or even over 100Gb in a month. But that doesn't change the fact that it is easily avoided
Game and software updates of 100+ Mb would only apply to selected games, and rarely (at all?) more than once a month, so no more than several Gb here (and that is allowing for duplicate downloads between multiple machines). Ordinary browsing (email attachments, etc) can rack up several Gb, especially in a household of several people as can gameplay / video streaming / etc. But to argue that High Definition porn is a necessity
in your life is, quite frankly, a little disturbing.
Even if we allow for about 10-20Gb of normal internet usage excluding video content (which for the sake of decency, let's assume comprises of sports replays) you still have between 36 and 76Gb of unused bandwidth depending on your plan. This represents about 77-162 hours of standard definition broadcast footage (at 8Mb/minute) or about 41-87 hours of 720p broadcasts (15Mb/min) or 27-58 hours of 1080p broadcasts (22.5Mb/minute). Or anywhere between 1 and 5 hours of footage per day.
I just hope you don't go blind with so much...ah..."sports" videos.
