Well, to get the obvious out of the way, on average well less than a gig of it is from torrents. I may occasionally torrent shows I can't find elsewhere on pay services, etc, but in truth, all it took was cutting the cord. My daughter watches two to three hours a day worth of anime and CW crap on Netflix, my wife watches old sitcom re-runs on Hulu for 2 hours a night, and my son and I watch tons of TV over Amazon Instant Video and Netflix. Considering that I'm a night owl, there's usually a TV going non-stop from dusk to dawn in my house. Add in VOIP telephone with two females and a couple of multiplayer gaming-obsessed kids in the house and we blow the cap out of the water without even trying.
That's one thing that they don't factor in about caps is family size. A single person and a family of four have the same cap. By my self I used to only rack up 50-60GB a month. My sister cut her cable and internet to save money and they come over here and mooch off of mine. With my sister doing her shit and my niece watching crap on Netflix, I'm now nudging the 150GB cap my ISP has. I don't think it's enforced, but I do have basic cable as well.

Until recently it used to say there was a 30GB cap on their web site, when I was doing double that. But for over a year their site was out of date showing the fastest package as 4Mbit when the standard package was 10Mbit. It's still out of date though as it shows the highest speed package is 10Mbit, but sometime ago they upgraded. I'm getting 12Mbit, and their TV commercial advertises speeds up to 50Mbps. Of course there wasn't a cap when I signed up years ago, and I was never officially informed of a cap.
