I have recently started playing CS:GO and I use limited usage internet connection. I want to know bandwidth usage a competitive CS:GO match has.

Details, -Official server competitive match.

-Nothing extra downloaded as I play on default maps and stuff.

-Ping lies between 64 - 200

-match lasts 30-40 minutes

-I play for 1 to 3 hours straight

Can someone help?

if you are on 64 tick , its around 25KB/s (both up+down). if you are on 128 tick , its around 70KB/s (both up+down).

  1. 64 tick -> 1 hour play -> 87 MB
  2. 128 tick -> 1 hour play -> 246 MB

you can use application like

  • windows resource monitor
  • du meter
  • NetLimiter

There are a lot software out there that you can track what resource you are using.

    It also depends on the amount of voice chat going on in-game, so it's hard to say. But these figures should give a base estimate.

    you are right, this also will add data but you can disable this feature and not use it to save data.

  • This is cool. so its about 25-50kbps youd say? That frightens me a little bit. my internet struggles to hit 100 sometimes, and if anyone else dares to look at the chrome logo it dips way below 30... Commented Jun 27, 2016 at 15:31
