I'm on cable. I will download those programs when this billing period is over. I started to do it earlier this evening, then noticed the size of the file, so I will have to put it off for the next 5 days. Thanks a lot for your input. Your reply was helpful.

Among the other suggestions, I seem to remember an add on for Firefox that allows the user to set default resolutions for you tube. I might be remembering incorrectly, because it was a while back, but I remember using it to make sure YT vids always loaded on the lowest resolution possible.
It's all about making little differences that, ideally, add up to saving a meaningful amount of bandwidth. 40gb is not a whole lot to work with, but with all the suggestions it might give you some more head room.
