95 percentile traffic for web hosting

There has been a lot of confusion about how much GB per 1Mbps of data can be transferred in a month using web hosting companies that bill customers using 95% (95 percentile) billing.

From our tests and Internet feedback the average 1Mbps of 95 percentile billing method will transfer around 185-190 GB of data. However it really depends on the traffic patterns for each particular web site so the numbers above are just rough calculations what to expect.

    I agree, it can be quite confusing as companies say thing but mean another.
