Required bandwidth for video

From According to Slingbox, a high quality stream requires approximately at least an 800 Kbps connection over 3G and a standard or auto stream requires at least a 500 Kbps connection. A low quality stream would likely be around 300 Kbps. You can use these numbers as estimates to determine the amount of bandwidth you might use with SlingPlayer. There are 60 seconds in a minute and 60 minutes in an hour. There are eight bits in a byte, 1024 kilobytes (KB) in a megabyte (MB) and 1024 megabytes in a gigabyte (GB). Therefore, if you are streaming for one hour at 800 Kbps, your bandwidth consumption is about 352 MB per hour (60 seconds times 60 minutes times 800 Kbps/8 bits/1024 KB). At 500 Kbps, consumption is about 220 MB per hour and at 300 Kbps it is about 132 MB per hour. For a 5 GB limit, this equates to approximately 14 hours at 800 Kbps, 23 hours at 500 Kbps and 38 hours at 300 Kbps.
