      I've been downloading from USENET 24/7 for the past week done over 200GB. I rang sky on an unrelated matter but I asked about my usage. The guy said "you've done 213GB so far, happy days!"

      That was it

      You've a long way to go before you can download the entire Internet yet.

      It looks like you'll need a huge NAS capacity of around 1 Zebibyte to accomplish this.

      Zebibyte - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orders_of_magnitude_(data)
      4.71021 bits (0.50 zettabytes) – amount of digitally stored information in the world as of May 2009

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
