Monthly Bandwidth Estimator

Calculate Total KB/GB Bandwidth Usage per Month

Calculating bandwidth usage is very simple - it's just the file size multiplied by the number of loads (views). However, sometimes it's easy to forget to include all the files. (BTW: many people do not understand that K is kilo and that file size of 30000 is about 30Kb i.e. for estimation divide file size by 1000 (or 1024 to be exact)).

This page will help when estimating monthly bandwidth usage. Of course, it's only an estimation because the output depends on the 'best guess' when entering data.

For a web page, it's just the total file size for all the .html, .txt, images, sounds, etc that are included in the page .. x .. times the number of views.

However, when you (or others) load / post your files (such as images, sounds, etc) on another site (such as a forum) then those larger files can really increase the bandwidth usage.

Just as an example, the default values are from a web page (10KB) with about 100 visitors a day (3000/month). The web page has two images (50KB and 12KB). And there was 1 image (137KB) that was posted in a forum message and viewed by 290 people a month.

VIP: reminder - a file size of 1024000 is 1000KB (or 30000 is about 30K). In other words, many people enter the wrong value i.e. they enter a value about 1000 times too high. Use KB for file size input! ! !
BTW: leave out comma's e.g. enter 30,000 as 30000


For single web page:
Visitors (hits) /month = . . . . File size = KB
For One image file:
Visitors (hits) /month = . . . . File size = KB
Other files:
Visitors (hits) /month = . . . . File size = KB
Visitors (hits) /month = . . . . File size = KB
Visitors (hits) /month = . . . . File size = KB
Visitors (hits) /month = . . . . File size = KB
Visitors (hits) /month = . . . . File size = KB
Visitors (hits) /month = . . . . File size = KB
Visitors (hits) /month = . . . . File size = KB
Visitors (hits) /month = . . . . File size = KB
Visitors (hits) /month = . . . . File size = KB
Visitors (hits) /month = . . . . File size = KB
Visitors (hits) /month = . . . . File size = KB
Visitors (hits) /month = . . . . File size = KB
Visitors (hits) /month = . . . . File size = KB
(Note: 1KB = 1024B; therefore, 500MB = 512000KB = 524288000B
.. and .. 1GB = 1048576000B)
