Can you help please.
English

Hi

I am thinking of changing my internet provider to Plusnet. They have offered me, for just over £6 per month, broadband at 10GB. I explained to them what I do on my computer - I turn it on most days at about 8.30 and switch it off about 6pm. I dont watch or download movies or itunes or iplayer but I do download about 3 or 4 albums a month and I listen to internet radio through a Sonos system and the first zone player is connected to my router.

Plusnet say 10GB should be enough for all of this but I can upgrade to 60GB. Will 10GB be enough? Does anyone out there know?

Thanks in advance

Paul

Well an album in lossless flac format could take up around 400 MB, or in mp3 around 100MB.

 

so (assuming a download overhead of around 20%)

 - 4 albums would be around 2GB in flac, or 0.5GB in mp3.

 - Internet radio at 128Kbs would take up around 0.07 GB for an hour.

 

So I would assume 10GB would be enough for now. Im sure they wouldnt mind if u have to upgrade ur package in the future.
