- How do I limit internet bandwidth? 1 answer
I am traveling and using a 3G mobile internet provider, it has limit of 3GB download every 7 days. So I was wondering what tweaks can I apply in Ubuntu 12.04.3 to minimize internet usage. I already disabled flash and images on my browser, but what else could I do. Are there some programs that use bandwidth on the background I can disable or any other tips?
