      kbps to megabytes per hour

      Hi guys

      I use a 3G datacard to access the net whilst at work. I also make use of a 'Slingbox' and stream media into my machine at around 384kbps.

      As I am capped at 256Mb per month, I have to be carefull how long I use it at any time. It would help me make a decision on viewing times if I could work out how much of my allowance I was using up each hour or half hour.

      Is there a formula for converting kbps to Mb per hour, and if there is could someone please share.

      Thanks in advance

      Thanks Jennifer.

      As Fibre said the server problems removed the rest of the thread and this was sorted, but it is good to have a resource for future if my cap changes
