Netflix SD = 1GB per hour, Netflix HD = 3GB per hour so your good for 10 hours a day to get your 300GB. Surfing the web does not use much bandwidth. Netflix uses a lower bitrate to save bandwidth. Also depends on the codec but won't get into detail about that.cappaj wrote: ↑Dec 2nd, 2016 10:51 amThanks for all the info/advice on data limits, htauthority. I just signed up with Can-Net, should have service activated next week - I was worried because our kids watch a LOT of Netflix, but I checked our router's traffic stats and we average about 300 GB a month so should be fine. Netflix is set for HD all the time, but maybe kids shows are often in lower def because kids couldn't care less?
High end streaming or gaming can easily use 20-30GB per hour depending on settings as a comparison to the Netflix you are worried about. A high end game/stream can use 10x what your kids use per hour. So parents with a cap have cause for concern for sure Especially if the kids do the all night gaming marathons competing with others from around the world at max settings.
