      Anything you download counts towards your bandwidth limit, if you are on Max then as you were told before the fair usage is around 250Gb, though not enforced.
      BTW You may want to alter your personal details, as you say there you are on the Base product (2gb cap)

      Yes as the data is still going to your PC, streaming is the same as downloading/ uploading.

      Yes, anything that comes or goes, down or up your phoneline to/from the router is bandwidth and is counted in your total. Streaming is downloading even if nothing is left on your PC after you have watched the film. The same applies to speedtests. If what you are using is like P2P or torrents then you will be uploading at the same time, which also counts towards your total.
