@Dream: Hmm he must not have met the cap cause he does not know he has one. Then again He was a Everquest friend an that doesnt eat up alot of usage. Where as say The elder scrolls online would. Shoot thought had something there for ya.

This is my present Internet provider.

The plan I have with them is the 20 GB hotspot one for $90 a month, which also serves as my family's means of Internet. As a backup for my personal use, I tether my cell phone which is on a prepaid AT&T plan. That one is $60 a month for 2.5 GB of data and I can get additional increments of 1 GB for $10 a pop. So overall, I'm paying at least $150 a month for Internet.

@Dream: Dam ya got my condolences. Thats brutal. Would a dial up plan be bit better for back up tho? Earthlink is still around. Actualy thats what i use as a back up. Tho not got around to getting a usb modem for it.

In your case tho I would run every add blocker known to man to cut down the use.

I have Firefox with AdblockPlus and normally run video quality settings for sites like Youtube or Dailymotion to 240p or lower to cut down on data usage and ad pop-ups. Been very efficient to help cut down on data where possible.

I normally just play my videogames if my internet is out unless I feel like watching anime. If so, I choose something I'm either in the middle of or re-watch a show.

the only games i play are online multiplayer types so video games are a big no for me.

If i have no other work to take care of ,i usually just read the manga that i've downloaded on my tablet, there are a lot of free apps for manga readeres on Google play like quickmanga, manga phoenix, mangahere.

if i'm too bored to read then i'll probably draw something on my graphic tab.

@flashback180: Thought of getting a kindle as they are not that much but seems the price of manga is dirt cheep on them. Graphic tablet is a option for me now since this all took place. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HO5LRQ0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 now if i can just not be sick for a bit to use the dang thing :/
