What is Internet usage?

Internet usage refers to the amount of data flowing through your computer when you use the Internet for downloading/uploading Web pages, transferring FTP files, or using exchange networks, chat services, email, etc.

 

The data flow is generally measured in kilobytes (abbreviated as KB in English and Ko in French). Below is a summary table of the various computer data units:
 

    Name                Symbol             Power              Number of bytes

 

One kilobyte            KB                    210                       1,024 bytes

 

One megabyte         MB                   220                       1,048,576 bytes

 

One gigabyte           GB                   230

                     1,073,741,824 bytes

 

One terabyte            TB                   240

               1,099,511,627,776 bytes

 


As an example, the Web page you are reading contains 8 KB of data. So, with your monthly limit of 30 GB, you can download this page 4,026,531 times!
