This data transfer calculator can estimate your total household data transfer per month. Since different people use the internet in different ways, up to 3 separate profiles can be configured and their data transfer added up for a monthly grand total. If a profile can apply to more than one user, adjust the “Applies to how many users?” slider.

People aren’t the only ones consuming data from the internet. Computers and devices such as Wii, smart phones, some BluRay players and HDTV’s also download data without your intervention. This is for system software updates, firmware updates and other application updates.

One note when using the calculator. Think about how you would like to use the internet and not how you may currently use it. For example, would you like to use cheaper or free internet VOIP telephone service? Would you like to download movies on demand? Are there educational resources that you wish your children could access? Keep these thoughts in mind when using the calculator.
