A quick google found this:
Roughly 70 Kbs if you are in a call with one person. This means you will get 500kByte per minute
so to be precise:
1 minute call at 70kbps consumes ~ 0,5 MB of bandwitdh
10 min ~ 5 MB
100min ~ 50 MB
Thanks for this
Can somebody send me details or a contact number for Adam.
Adam Naked here too......
The problem is you used Direct Connect..... who are basically crap and deal with limited companies!!! Better to ring them independently and get the better deal!!
If you wanna a beer....PM me

I have Internode and have had them in two locations. Speed is dependent on the state of your phone line and distance from the exchange primarily. Unfortunately some locations in the Adelaide metro area are a nightmare for ADSL of any type and the ISP can't do much about it (and people wonder why the NBN is such a good idea). Anyway Internode is a bit more expensive than most but I have found it a reliable ISP with very good tech help.

We have adam wimax in Aldinga, It doesn't use a landline, it uses microwaves. There is a tower built in the area you live in. you get an aerial put up on your roof which connects to your modem/router. each house with wimax has a dedicated port at the tower, (when the tower is full they build another, Aldinga has 2 towers now) so it doesn't slow down very much at peak hours, its supposed to be up to 12mbps, I run speed tests regularly and it often exceeds 12mbps. Just now its latency is 61ms jitter 8ms download 21.83mbps and upload 0.8mbps.That's interesting! We arrive Monday and are renting in Aldinga Beach and got the following answer from Adam Internet
In regards to your email, You can move while you are in contract. As you said you were moving to Aldinga, I know you won’t be able to get Adsl2+ in Aldinga as the area is a black spot. We do have a technology which is what most Aldinga residents use called Wimax. The only thing is it is quite expensive to relocate. So my suggestion to you would be to use one of our 3G wireless dongles until you move to you move to your permanent house. Then you will be able to look at a different service depending on where you move.
You are welcome to call my direct line and I can explain this to you in more detail or if you would like to sign up for one of our products I can help you out with that as well.
Can anybody shed any light on this please?
we pay $50 a month for 20gb which includes a VOIP phone with $50 included local and national calls. With the VOIP phone calls to uk landlines are 2c per minute and uk mobiles 17c per minute
The downside to wimax is the cost to get it installed, 1 year contract $300, 3year contract $100.
On a side note. they have just started to install the NBN in Aldinga, so within the next year you should be able to get fibre to the home.
