      If you want to make doubley sure install one of the free monitoring tools.
      A google search should reveal a few. I'll post a link to the one I still have
      installed from my connect days when I get home.

      on my orange broadband connection, ive gone over my 2GB monthly limit sometimes within an hour. I doubt you will ever hear anything from sky let alone pay extra until you go over 200-300GB downloaded.

      Thats the one I still have tho to be honest I dont even look at it anymore, my total for this month up and down is around 80 gig so I dont think they will be knocking on my door
