If you are just browsing the web, you are perfectly safe. Maybe download a few songs. Work it out, a few mp3s 12mb? You can have hours of surfing and some downloading as well and your perfectly within your limit!

i know about the songs its just the net browsing tht worries me surely it depends on wht pages and hw many u visit rather than hw long u visit them-if this is so wht is the average page worth?

I could run through 2 gigs in just a few hours. That is a crappy deal. Look for another host.

if you are only getting 32 your isp is ripping you off and you should dump them. Horrible ISP from the looks of it.

Yeah; I run through 2 Gigs in two to three days generallyt - but its a different useage. 2 Gigs is perfect for anybody who's just running the internet to surf and chat and maybe download some Music every now and then.
