Bandwidth usage on NWN



  • Just wondering if somebody knows how many MB/H for playing the game online?



  • According to my cricket broadband thing, it's been taking /roughly/ about 150 megs. I've been playing for a good. . . 7 hours or so and listening to Pandora off and on in the background. So, rough shot idea? Perhaps 10-15 megs/hour



  • So if I pay… $25 NZD (or about $20 USD) for 4GB, how much will I use up for say... an hour? lol.



  • Internet radio at 128 Kbps would be 16kbytes per second so 57,6 MB per hour. 43,2 MB if its 96Kbps broadcast. Now if its 150 MB in 7 hours… I need to find out whats wrong with my math. (Pandora is internet radio right??) Well radio is on and off so I m guessing its mostly off? In any case NWN usage should be a small sum of the 150 MB Stoneriver mentions so I think the estimation of 10 MB per hour is not far from reality. The more you change areas the more you download though. Especially if they are not cached in your PC. I 'd also like to know how NWN handles bandwidth if anyone has an idea.



  • I average around 20 mb aday thats with playing about 6-8 hours.

    Of course if your downloading stuff you will use alot more.

    this has been true for me in the past.. give or take a few mb

    so you're looking at about 140mb a week
    and approx 56o mb / month (i.e. 1/2 a GB)
    so with a 4 GB you should be well fine..assuming however that coa is all you do…...which is highly unlikely



  • I get about 3.5Gb a month on my phone, even months were I've played CoA every day I've not managed to exhaust that amount without spending a fair bit of time streaming video's and doing other stuff too.



  • I use to only use about ten megs a day and I played for hours. However I have a crap connection and live in South Africa so…

    It depends on your connection really. Not sure what Coa's usage would max at with the fastest connection but as listed above it is pretty low.
