Estimated game bandwidth

Postby Pythaes » Wed Jan 11, 2017 12:04 pm

I am moving into the in-laws whilst I have some building work completed and they have capped broadband. My own usage is circa 300GB a month, but I cannot ascertain how much is Elite and how much is, err, other stuff.

I appreciate this isn't an exact science, but does anyone know what is 'typical' bandwidth usage for ED, if used 2-3 hours a night might be if generally trading and missions? And what about patches too? I'm not familiar with the release schedule.

Any help appreciated.

It's not high, but if you press CTRL+B it will be displayed on screen and then you can monitor it over a typical session

Alternatively, you can use the bandwidth monitoring tools on W10. It'll show you usage details.
