does listening to web streaming radio use much bandwidth?

I wouldn't want to exceed my limit

Just wondering - I listen to it a lot.

How much would it use say per hour?

You can roughly work it out using maths - bitrate (normally 64-128) to bytes per second, then multiply up over time.

Just as a rough size/time guide - a decent quality stations gives about 1 meg per minute - so 1 gig would go in about 14 hours...

ps - if you use WinAMP you can right click and choose "View File Info" which shows the actual amount used...
