I'm looking to upgrade from dial-up to adsl. With the change I would like to fly online to see what it is like but the question I have is does anybody know how much data flying online uses?

The plan I'm looking at is for 512K speed with 20GB access a month. I know nothing about computers - is that massive? I wouldn't be flying all the time, perhaps two or three hours a week but don't want to eat up all my access just flying.

Any info or experiences would be good.

The game shouldn't eat up much data. Virtually nothing, if you only play 3 hours a week.

For comparison, an entire computer game or feature film is only 1-3gb to download. So long as you don't get too many of these large downloads, you should be ok.

That being said, any download limit sucks. In a perfect world, everyone would have fast, cheap unlimited broadband.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Oleg's gotta be rueing the day Mystic Puma took that shot of him. LOL

I think I've seen three variations of it already, FritzGryphon. FUNNY!

It's got to be the best picture yet. Reminds me of this one.
