Is this monthly usage? What is this, 1990? That's not enough, not nearly. Especially if you're watching videos online.

Streaming video will eat that 20 G in a hurry. Other than that, it should be fine.

20gb of broadband now a days doesn't seem to be enough especially if you watch tv online that its self can consume 20gb in less than a week. Netflix for example will consume anywhere from 2gb to 4.7gb per hour depending on if the content is hd or not, so think about how much tv you do watch on line and do the math and that only for watching tv. The other stuff like playing xbox online or simply researching/browsing the net would not get you over that limit ,so, if you cut your tv watching or remove it from the equation would put you in the green with your current 20gb cap. Hope this helps best of luck.

20Gb: Is that a monthly volume or daily? If its daily, yep, that should be enough. If its monthly, it might be, or it might not be. It helps a lot that you don't download movies or audio, but if you visit a lot of web pages that have the little embedded videos, or a lot of online video games, you could quickly use up your allotment. My suggestion is to take a week and watch your usage. You may need to get your ISP involved if you cannot look at your usage online. But during that week, do everything that you're likely to do in a week. Keep a diary of your online activities in that week. At the end the week, calculate your total usage and multiply by 4.333 to get your expected monthly usage. Is it more or less than 20Gb? If its more, then your diary will tell you what you were doing on which days that used the most bandwidth. And those are the things you need to do less of. For the record, I do stream music and movies, and I use nearly 200Gb per month, most months.
