[Kotaku] Halo Collection Has a 20 GB Day-One Update - Page 6

I can tell you right now that the average consumer on a high speed data connection uses more than 50GB per month these days.

Heck, back in 2011 the average was about 17 Gb a month - http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2011/nov/01/home-broadband-download-17-gigabytes

Just sitting here and looking at data usage of my customers on my network, randomly sampling from the thousands, I am seeing people breaking 50 GB already for the month - and we are only half way through. A 1080P stream from Netflix is 4.7 GB an hour; stream two shows per day for five days and you are at a total consumption of 47 GB for that five days. Or, using that as a base for the month, 188 GB per month.

EDIT:

Just looked at one of my more active customers, he is currently at 851 GB for the month - 17 days in. Normally if I were Comcast or a big guy I would flip my lid and send him nasty letters, but I don't care. Odds are he is going to break almost 2 TB this month, which is close to what he does each month.

His entire home is cable/sat free and he has several children, like I do. So they stream a lot.

I would like to motion that you take over Crapcast...I mean Comcrack....I mean...Crookcast, well, whatever their name is. You should take over and run it for the sanity of the rest of the nation.
When do you move?

My ISP will start sending me emails encouraging/warning me to upgrade to their highest package when i pass 300GB for the month. 300 is the "cap", but Ive gotten to 500+ with no throttling to fees. 2TB in a month just seems insane. Go outside kids! sheesh

I could never get behind the "You only get X amount of bandwidth per month!" thing. I am wholly against a business using a residential account to host servers - we have had them try - but when it comes to streaming, browsing, gaming, actual non-server hosting tasks, have at it.

Shoot, we have a gentleman that requested a static address for his father, so he could set up a box that he could remote into to help his father out when he needed. Why not? Helps his elderly father out, doesn't really cost us much to oblige. Customers that want to suspend service for months on end because they travel? Yup, we have them covered as well - it takes 3 minutes to suspend billing while they are South for the Winter, and a whole 3 minutes to activate them again when they get back.

We have long time customers that just send us a letter "Hey guys! We will be back by June 3rd! Just turn us on for June and send the bill.", so we do.

Big business is too corporate and too out of touch with their consumers. There is no reason they couldn't offer little things like this to make it a better experience for the customers they have. If my tiny ass company can do it, they sure as heck can. They just won't, because it might cut into 0.0034% of their profits.

That's what would happen with one of his punches, never mind the kick.

Haven't you heard? Bytes are in short supply! You better hurry up and buy some before they run out.

When Steam had that CoD: Ghosts multiplayer weekend thing a while ago I couldn't play with the keyboard and mouse, so I used the 360 controller and did actually quite well

Damn, I must have missed the TPS Report on that - I knew IPv4 addresses were short supply, but I didn't know about bits and bytes running low. I wonder if the delivery van forgot to change his blinker fluid and was pulled over, delaying the delivery. Or worse yet, maybe he didn't change his muffler bearing, and broke down?
