Found this tidbit of info handy:


Maximum Playback Bitrates on YouTube
FLV HQ: 1.5 Mbit/s (variable bitrate with peaks of 3.0 Mbps)
MP4 720p: 4.0 Mbit/s (variable bitrate with peaks of 5.0 Mbps)
MP4 1080p: 8.0 Mbit/s (variable bitrate with peaks of 10.0 Mbps)

Some ISP's (like Comcast) are capping their customers' bandwidth at 250GB/mo. If you're watching 1080p content from YouTube, that comes out to 69hrs of video each month or 2hrs 20min per day. Seems kind of stingy, esp for a family of 4 and esp for what they charge their customers.
