Hello all,

I will be setting up my first remote station in a rural area where internet is expensive. Would you guys be kind to share how many GB per month does your remote rig use and also how many hours per month you use the station? Low usage / moderate usage / heavy user? What can I expect my monthly internet usage be?

I think you'll find it isn't very much and no different that using VOIP for a phone. 

You can use this as a start of your calculations:

For normal ham internet use, I doubt you'll use 1GB/Month
