Hey guys.

With Steam, how much bandwidth does it use per hour? Same question with Gmod10. Reason I asked this is because I'm taking up 60mb an hour. Is it that when you place something(gmod), you down/upload it to the server? Steam Sucks.

When you download something, it downloads at the normal speed that you internet is (I download stuff at 150-200KB/sec) I find Steam quick good and useful, but I hated it when I had Dial-up, you really do need high-speed to use Steam "properly".

Yeah I have High Speed, but it sucks up SO much bandwidth I'm not allowed to play GMOD. :( Either way, screw steam/valve.

steam takes up like no usage of your internet at all.. what kind of high speed do you have? it must be your computer. or garry's mod isn't the smoothest game to play on the internet anyways.. with tons of people spawning props and doing things that takes up a lot of speed.. i have a 6mb internet connection and i still find lag in some servers.. it's not steam causing the problem

I have iinet as my provider. They're pretty fast but it's not the lag that i care about. It's the amount of bandwidth Gmod10 has chewed on (60mb AN HOUR).

If I can't fix this then I'll only be able to play it at the end of the month (refresh time) and Garry will suck and so does Steam.

No, your provider sucks, really hard. 60mb an hour isn't that much, it's just because you download new models/maps etc. So screw you, instead of Steam and Garry. You can also just put steam in offline mode and it will consume about... NOTHING AT ALL. Steam and Garry rule. Your provider sucks. It's easy.

Looks like it.. Some providers have a limit. Like a 5 GB / month or something. It's really crappy.
