    I'm just wondering how much Mb per minute or hour does streaming radio download. I have a download limit so I want to keep an eye on it.

    It depends on the specific stream. I'm looking at one that's coming at 128kbits. That comes up to 439 megabits/hour or 55 megabytes/hour. I suspect it wouldn't take long to run up the score. :)

    Thanks, atleast that gives me an idea! I'll base it around that, coz I have been listening to quite a bit. Better go back to common tune in!

    Depends on whats your download limit. At 55mb/hr, it would take you 18hrs to run through 1GB of bandwidth. I'm not sure about you, but 18hrs of video is a long time for me. Of course, this will depend on the actual limit that you have, because some of the lower end internet packages come with 200 or 400mbs of data.

    We're talking audio here, not video. :)
