Running out of Internet :-(

StofaNet at the limit! Mikkel is going to love this… :-)

It seems that Stéphanie and I will be running out of bandwidth in a week or so… We only have 10 GB/month, and we’ve already used up 6 GB in the first 11 days. When we hit the bandwidth cap we can buy extra capacity at the hefty price of 0.10 DKK/MB (about 1.5 €-cent or 2 $-cent). Ugh!

We’ll probably have to upgrade our subscription for next month to the 4 Mib line with 20 GB/month bandwidth. That would cost us 400 DKK/month compared to 350 DKK/month right now, so it’s actually quite a good deal. The problem is that it might not work — twice the bandwidth, but also twice the speed… We’ll see how it goes.

    Hehe… hahahahaaha…


    Sorry :)

    Interesting. Are you so much popular? I’m actually under 1 GB per month for my own website, which isn’t exactly what I’d call an unvisited site since it hosts Markdown and a couple of other software.

    If you have access to detailed statistics, I’d suggest you take a look at what files are taking the most bandwidth and try to see if you can reduce them a little. And I’d add that Gzip compression isn’t working on Stephanie’s site (on the home page at least).

    No, it’s not our webpages, it’s our own Internet connection. Our sites are hosted at a place called NEXCESS and only use a couple of gigabytes a month. I’m not that popular :-)

    As for Gzip compression not working, then that’s probably because hosted here at via a couple of rewrite rules… It mostly work, but I’m not surpriced that something like Gzip compression fails.

    Ah, so I misunderstood.
