Mirroring i386 and source probably consumes about 20-30Gb/month on 
average, I'd say - but I'm mirroring testing/unstable, so with stable 
only I'd expect the usage to be a lot lower. The initial sync was a lot 
more than that, of course. I kick the sync off at 3am - you may find 
your ISP has a "non-peak" time that doesn't count against your usage 
cap. Or you could switch to an ISP that doesn't cap usage, though you 
seem to have to go for "Business" packages to get that usually.
