this is really very basic question.. but i cud not get the precise answer from anyone - not even my CTO. kindly answer.in many packages there is a limit on the download(+upload) amount some MBs or GBs etc.now what of following is considered as 'download(or upload)':browsingopening mailsopening mail attachmentsIM chattingvoice chattingautomatic virus uploador none of the above and only actually 'saving' something on my machineor any bit of information that leaves and arrives at my machine is considered as downloadalso- when i say 64kbps package, it means that ideally browsing speed is 64kbps and downloading speed is 64/8 i.e. 8kbps .. : is this true?

i think even if you don't do anything still you'll be downloading. because in order to stay connected yu'll have to send some bytes and recieve some bytes and that's the data added in your downloads.
