So, I'm living with 3 friends in a house, and our download limit is depleted. I blame their habbits of watching youtube all the time while doing their projects (they're architects). They blame me playing Runescape.

I always thought Runescape didn't need much loading and all, but does this mean is doesn't take much off the download limit? One thing I know for sure, even while our limit was this depleted that loading one yioutube video didn't work, I could still play RS pretty smoothly. This is why I would think it doesn't take much off the limit. Am I right?

Get a broadband monitor. I promise you that youtube videos use up a hell of a lot more download than Runescape does. People often make the mistake of thinking that streaming video isn't really much of a download, but it really is.

If all four of you played RS 24-7 you probably wouldn't hit your bandwidth limit for the month. It's definitely the YT videos.

By the way, what is your limit?

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

They have stupid internet providers in Belgium. Costs a lot for very little traffic.

It's 10 GB a month per login (its a student server, Kotnet). We've got 3 log ins (well, I've got 1, they got 2 from sister/friend cause they aren't member of my Uni.

I would say the videos take up more. You can see how much bandwidth RS uses by inputing "displayfps" in the dev console (hit the "`" key ingame atleast its that for american keyboards) It will list various information including Download and Upload K/s

I remember when I had a 5 gig limit per month and all I did with it was play RS I didn't come even close to half. When I let my sister use it to watch Youtube, I lost 3 gigs in a matter of a few days.
