Before ADSL, I used a maximum of about 250Mb a month.  That was because 
on a 28k modem in Australia, you can't play games, and you have to be 
aware that one apt-get upgrade will cost you 10 hours.

After ADSL, I haven't been so frugal, mostly because things arrive 
almost as soon as I start downloading them.  The biggest contributor to 
traffic is my Diablo II playing - with the low latency (which is what I 
wanted ADSL for), playing games becomes a reality, not a fantasy :)

(and playing games for a month is a hell of a lot cheaper than going to 
the movies once)
