      Nope. Only what you pay to MS for the XBL Gold subscription.


      Won't affect your usage much though (unless you download loads of game demos & HD movie rentals etc.).

      FAIR USAGE POLICY

      Sky is committed to ensuring that our systems and network (“Sky Network”) and Sky Broadband are fast, reliable and great value for all of our customers. Our FUP is designed to help us keep that promise to you.
      I doubt if Xbox would have a lot of effect on the bandwidth available to Max. From what I can gather playing an Xbox 6 hrs a day for a month would use about 20 Gb. This is playing only of course, downloading games/patches would be extra.

      no way, even in extreme cases you will never use more than 50mb in a day, if all you are doing is playing games
