Default Semi OT- How much data is it to stream games?

This question is semi OT, but still Raptors related. I don't have TSN 2, but I have crappy Rogers internet. They capped my internet usage to 2 GB earlier this month, but I upgraded to 25 GB monthly today. I'm wondering, does anyone know roughly how much data will be used up watching one Raptors game online? I know it's a tricky question but hopefully someone can give me an answer.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know how much a game might consume but I would suggest the following:
- download and install this free bandwidth monitoring tool:
==- Readerror -== - Downloads
Reset the count at the beginning of the game and after the first 30 or 60 minutes of watching you'll have an idea how much it would consume for the entire game lasting between 2-3 hours.

Listen to me...call rogers and leave them...
Call teksavvy at TekSavvy Solutions Inc

Their internet is DSL and is faster then Roger or any provider in Toronto. They don't cap and you can have unlimited net for $40 bucks.

If you don't believe me how good the internet provider is google them and you will see.

Yeah I feel for you.

There is a few tricks around the contract with Rogers.
#1. Ask a neighbour or craigslist for someone to take your contract. As your rates should be cheaper than new customer rates so you might get someone who needs a short term contract. Sell them on the idea that you no longer need internet.

#2. This is a painful but works. Call Rogers tell them your internet keeps acting up. They will send out a tech to fix it. Then call again, let them sent out one more tech. Then call once more and ask to speak to the manager. Let him know you are not satisfied with their performance, he will probably be nice and try to help you solve the problem. Tell him you’re sick of tech coming out and not fixing the issue. Tell im your did your own trouble shooting since you have 3 PC’s you work from and all have the same issues thus proving the problems is on their end. Let him give you options and just come up with excuses. Eventually he will say how you would feel if I let you have a shorter term contract so who can go with another provider and see roger still offers the best services. This is key! When he says it as you have to say you want him to cancel the contract as end of the month or end of the next year term whatever goes in your favour. Pretty much it will be a headache I did it with my phone contract since I was paying $56 bucks with Rogers while the Telus offered for $35.

I hate Rogers monopoly business practice.
