2 GB a month, eh. That's a show-stopper for me. I have been monitoring
my bandwidth and between me and my one neighbor, we're hitting 4 GB a
day. Of course part of that is I am maintaining a Fedora Core Apt/Yum
repository mirror. that resyncs several hundred megabytes every night.
Even with a modem I know I've hit hundreds of megs a month before. So 2
GB isn't really that much at all.
