I've got 1200GB/month bandwidth.
I'm currently using about 2-300 megs a day. Out of roughly 40 Gigs.
That seemed like a lot of bandwidth available.
500 streams at 12kBps (== 96 kbps) @ 86,400 seconds in a day == 518,400,000kB == 518,400MB == 518GB
But, er, maybe it's not.
I could afford, hmm. 100 streams at 48 kbps. Nope, not even that--52GB/day. Shit. 100 streams at 24 kbps, but that's not listenable--so... 70 streams at 48kbps. Yeah, I could afford that.
The rates places charge makes more sense now.
