Well it has been one week since I setup the new firewall/gateway on my home network, and I just looked at the statistics for my usage of the internet. According to the router, I have used 476Gb in one week. But on average I don’t use more then 100Mbits of traffic speed. I never knew I used so much. Makes me glad I don’t have a bandwidth cap on my internet connection as this data means I probably use up to 2TB of data in a month.
While I do have 1Gbit I really don’t use it much, there are a few times I use it, and it nice to have it when I use it, but the amount of time I use it is not often, maybe for 30 seconds when downloading a large file.
