24 Kbps is in bits, which is 1/8 of a byte, and when you multiply 24*1/8 you get 3 KBps (kiloBYTE). So just extrapolate that math out:
3 KBps * 60 seconds = 180 KB/minute * 60 = 10800 KB/hour (or 10.8 MB of data per hour). I think you can extrapolate the math even further! Now, I am hoping your were referencing if you did 3 hours a day for an entire month, you would come in at around 1 GB of data streamed into your phone.
I figured .89 GB in a 28 day month at 3 hours per day. (edit) your pretty close, but it's still less then 1gb.
1min in kbps
24kbps * 60 = 1440kbps (for 1 min in kilobits)
this equals [1440 / 8 = 180KB (for 1 min in KiloBytes)]
3hrs in kbps
1440kbps *(3*60min) = 259,200kbps (for 3hrs in kilobits)
7days in kbps
259,200kbps *(7 days) = 1,814,400kbps
28days in kbps
1,814,400kbps *(4 weeks) = 7,257,600kbps (one mo. use)
7,257600kbps/8 = 907,200KB
907,200KB/1024 = 885.94 MB
885.94/1000 or 1024? = .89 GB or .87 GB
So, if I did this right which I think I did, this is less than the limit. Am I missing something here. I think it's stretching it a bit to think this is going to be too much for Sprint to handle. I don't think the 1 gig limit in bandwidth equated to just download bandwidth, did it? Anyway, I thought the math earlier was a little flawed so I decided to look it up to be sure. (edit) okay, your math wasn't flawed. You just guessed at the rest. My bad. I was bored at work so I figured I'd just take it further.(edit) Also, add 31.64MB per day over 28 days to be more exact on usage.
Oh yeah, I hope Miami makes it to the Sugar Bowl so OU can exact their revenge on Miami. "Muhahaha!!!"
Go Sooners!
