Online gaming data usage

Hello.  We are about to have U-Verse installed.  I am reading about the 250 data usage cap, which seems not to be enforced at the moment.

 

I am concerned about playing online games.  How much data does that use up per hour?

 

If the cap is enforced, I am afraid I might run over my allotment by playing games online.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks.

Don't worry about it. Gaming online will not be that big of an impact on your usage.

 

Downloading/streaming movies, or downloading game iso's, will use far more than just gaming.

Currently, the 250GB data usage statistic is not being enforced. It has not been for the last few years - I don't recall if it was ever enforced. For DSL it is, for UV it is not. Unlimited usage is actually a selling point in Sales for U-verse currently.
