    I see a lot of questions on how much internet will you get for your money ( I think I asked once)

    Anyway the following information came with my sons annual upgrade today.


    5GB will Approx get you:

    1,747,627 E-mail
    34,953 Web page look ups
    10,486 low-res Digital Photos
    1280 Vcast Music with Rhapsody PC Downloads.

    Again this is just all examples, to give you an idea of how far 5GB will go.

    I was streaming the draft from nfl.com over the weekend, and it used approx. 1GB for the couple hours I was watching.

    Streaming music & videos uses bandwith faster than anything, save gaming.

    I have never got near 5gb. I have watched all kinds of videos from youtube, downloaded TONS of apps for the Storm, viewed TONS of webpages, watched MLB on ESPN mobile, and use iheartradio and flycast. The most I've gotten up to was 3.89 GB of bandwidth.

    Likewise. I think the most I've ever got was around 3 1/2 gigs. And that was quite a bit of streaming.

    It was for tethering, I see I forgot that part. You have unlimited data on your BB

    My USB card has been close to 5gb but only once when I was downloading and uploading Leaked OS's. But it was at 4.4ishgb and I just stopped using it for 4 days or so until my cycle renews.
