How Often Do You Exceed Your Monthly Broadband Quota?

Recent research suggests that only a small percentage of Australians actually exceed their download quotas each month. How often do you find yourself being shaped as the end of the month looms?

ZDNet reports that a recent study of Australian broadband usage patterns by Market Clarity found that only 15% of Australians regularly exceed their broadband allowance, and that the typical Aussie account uses 7GB a month.

I very much suspect Lifehacker readers are heavier broadband users than average and that 7GB would barely be enough, so I’m wondering: how often do you exceed your monthly allowance?

Feel free to expand upon your strategies for ensuring you don’t go over the limit in the comments.
