usage of programmes

Postby sparkles » Fri Jan 25, 2013 4:47 pm

Hi can anyone please help me. Is there a way of finding out how much broadband usage per programme on the Iplayer? I have had recently problems with BT over my usage going over the allowed amount and they suggested it could be the Iplayer. If there is a way to check this, would help me to confirm wether its the Iplayer using a lot of GB's or a problem with BT. thanks Sparkles x :D

Hi Sparkles,
A list of typical iPlayer file sizes can be found here.

What is your usage limit and how much do you use iPlayer?

Hi Matt. I use the I.player most days for a few programmes. I use BT and have a 40GB usage. I have not changed my habits on the web either BBC or say C4. But recently its gone sky high. The techno bods from BT say it may be the amount I use but as I have used it less recently due to study/illness it cant be that Im sure. But thanks for the information as on Monday a guy from BT is contacting me re-over usage and trying to resolve the issue. Its been 3 weeks so far nothing changed grrr lol but now I have something to tell him. Ty Sparkles x
