Re: [newtech-1] Comcast's proposed download bandwidth caps

To quote SAI:

Downloading game patches uses a bunch of bandwidth once in a while, but normal [World of Warcraft] game play tops out around 30-60 kilobytes/second, or maybe a[masked] megabytes an hour run rate, according to one blog. Another user says normal usage is closer to 1-5 megabytes per hour. Continue to play until your eyes bleed.

I guess you can extrapolate from there.
