home data usage

Is this light, medium? I don't know.

November is shaping up to be a good month. The cable company slipped in a sideways snake-oil rate increase, so I'm thinking of throwing on the torrent and Tor traffic 24/7 for awhile.

Every day I hope for Google Fiber to come to town, so I can call up those cable bastids and say "bye."

    Not yet. Probably in the works eventually.I don't yet stream much of my TV over the net, just a movie every now and then. That'll help get my data up as I get more programming online.The sideways snake-oil rate increase is the modem. The modem that has been included in the Internet rate for 5 years is suddenly $3.95 a month extra. I'm sure that's just for starters.

  3. I'm at 71.1 GB inbound (15.0 GB outbound) over the last month on my DSL connection. I download a lot of podcasts and the large Democracy Now mp4 torrent pretty much daily. I haven't been downloading any Linux ISOs at all, either.

    Downloading for democracy. 🙂 I still read Amy in text mode unless there is a guest on that I have to see, like Chomsky or the recent Oliver Stone activity. I never miss Michael Moore, though I wish for once he'd wear some decent clothes and take off that goon baseball cap. Amy still needs to go to a salon.

  5. Time Warner. D:Yea, um, they're doing that to everyone who is with them.I'd take action.

    The only action to take is get Google Fiber if it comes here. I've never had DSL that was worth a damn, and Time Warner is the only cable ISP in town, so themz the options.AT&T has U-verse in some areas, but I'm not yet desperate enough to do business with that company.
