Find Bandwidth Requirements with This Bandwidth Calculator

This calculator estimates bandwidth requirements for use in our data center. Our actual billing is based on the 95% rule. This estimate is based on the assumption that 320GB of data transfer per month will amount to 1Mbps of bandwidth. This estimate has proven to be fairly consistent for use with a fully burstable 100Mbps port under the 95% rule.

Download and upload language is from the perspective of the user, not the server.
