Default Online games

Hia, im finally getting a wireless internet connection sometime this week and the package is a nice 8meg speed, free wireless modem/router etc but i have a slight concern which is the download limit, its only 6gig a month.

What i need to know is when i get online with my 360 what does that generate over say an hours worth of online gameing?

If say im playing GOW, GRAW, PGR3 how much of my limit would be used and do you think i would have to be carefull how much i play online?

If i go over the 6gig its £1 every gig after that

Thanks

It will be used for surfing, pc online games, 360 online and wii online.

6Gigs a month isn't that much. I easily use 500MB a day on a normal day, so 6Gig would last about 12 days or so. That's the first time I have heard of a home ISP doing that. If you have a hosted web server, that's standard, but a home ISP? Hmm..

That's a good question. You could gauge it yourself using DU Meter, or something of the sort.

If it were me, I would opt for the Option 3 package:

£22.99 per month for first
3 months £26.99 thereafter¹

It's really only £4.00 per month more after the first 3 months, and you have 40GB instead of 6.
