Don’t concern yourself with the internet allowance, it’s all transferred ‘internally’, that’s why it’s called a Local Area Network.

Yep, the file transfer traffic is between you home PCs only without involving access to Internet. In order to prove this, you can disconnect Internet connection cable and then test the local file transfer between home PCs, it will still work.

Hope this helps.

ic of 40gb is nothing to worry about. its probably way too much for what you use the internet for. if there are any cheaper packages available. consider them. Unless you watch TV online and play online games, you couldnt possibly reach it.
