DSL Bandwidth

I've blogged about DSL before and about bandwidth before but never about DSL bandwidth so here goes.

There are always rumblings about bandwidth caps among the carriers, both landline and wireless. While I'm not a huge user of bandwidth that got me interested in what I was using.

Fortunately I'm using dd-wrt in my home router. One of the administration screens shows you the WAN bandwidth over time. Here's what one month's looks like.

I've been capturing this month by month and graphing this.

So I'm just below 3 Gb down per month. That spike back in the summer of 2011 is the month before my TechNet subscription lapsed.

I'm not sure that this is actionable right now but is interesting nevertheless.
