Thanks for that. Saving bandwidth is important to me as you know.
Best thing for limiting bandwidth is, no scripts, no images, no plugins, no cross site downloading, no videos etc. Some browsers do better than others.

Let me see. Let me do a test.

First let me get a list of links for the test. Just regular stuff that us geeks might read.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxygen
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ew&daysprune=7

https://www.google.com/advanced_search
http://www.hardwarebook.info/
https://docs.python.org/3/
https://doc.qt.io/qt-6/portingguide.html
https://developers.google.com/edu/c++/getting-started

Let me clear out everything from the web browser. So that it has to get everything.

And now open
Code:
xterm -T IFtop -e sudo iftop -nBPi any
So that I can post an image of it when all done.

And now open the browser and open each link above, with everything turned off (My own browser, webengine based)

I didn't cheat, I opened all of them, one by one, and let the page load. Not all that much to load when you don't have scripts or images or videos on.

2.04MB to load all 14 of those pages. You can compare yours against my results if you want to. I had nothing turned on in the web browser. And of course you can't always do that if you want a working page. But you can a lot of the time.

Anyway, there is a baseline from a web browser that does nothing unless you tell it to.

Everyone thinks I live in another state hazel because my isp main server is out of state at corporate.

Not sure how Ireland ISP addresses work. Like I said. It is like having a out of state filter, sort of.

I'll tell you how Irish IP addresses work, as I live here. We were pathetically undersupplied with IP addresses for our needs. Antrim, BTW, is technically in the 6 counties known as Northern Ireland, and you may get your IP from England.

That aside, the Republic of Ireland has gone after the Tech sector jobs and has many data centres. So we ran out of IPs, and bought unused blocks of IP addresses from others. My particularly IP was originally assigned to Russia. On the Internet I'm detected as being in Waterford. I'm actually in Dublin, and my ISP has it's address in Dundalk.

In short, when it comes to Ireland and IP allocations, nobody has a clue, really. They are doing well in my case getting to Ireland. Those were Russian IPs, sold to Denmark, and the other sold to Ireland. That block was probably assigned as required to all the competing ISPs who have customers all over the country. It's actually one of a block of IPs my ISP had for DHCP but when I enquired aboput a fixed IP they assigned me the one I was on at the time.
