SWTOR and how it affects data usage per month on your ISP?

Seems we're having to cut back. My roomie's internet usage seems to be really excessive for my monthly plan.

One of these concerns is how much SWTOR factors into that. Yeah, there's more he does like streaming video and other MMOs (League of Legends I think).

Can anyone give me some numbers as to what the rate of data usage is for SWTOR alone/specifically? What is your plan from your ISP and what data limits do you have?

Mine is 150GB per month AT&T which is huge for just a single person. However it seems at the peak of usage sometimes SWTOR is involved. Every time usage goes over there's a $10 fee and another limit of additional 100GB after which they charge an additional $10, and so on and so forth. I'll probably need to get a separate internet connection just for playing SWTOR. So this may well get expensive.

Hardly any data is used up by playing any video game online, the entire point of online video game code is that it's efficient and fast... if it weren't then online video games would be unplayable by everyone around the world and the entire online video game industry wouldn't be able to work at all.

We're talking megabytes of data a month here if you play regularly.

So yeah, if your room mate is streaming videos and you're on a plan that charges you extra for going over, it's his fault.

Figured as much. He's trying to convince me that someone has hacked our IP and is leeching it and going around spoofing it.

I'll check the MAC addresses assigned to devices but...this didn't happen *before* he came along. Fact.
