A month worth of Spotify premium usage will result in this amount of traffic : http://imgur.com/wVdmS (screenshot from my network traffic monitor)

I completely agree with the poster who said that this is an acceptable price to pay for the awesome UX we're getting.

Spotify's UX is okay, I wouldn't really call it awesome.

I mean it's got all the music player basics (playlists, search, etc), but there are almost no music discovery features and the social stuff is pretty lacking.

How much do you listen a day, on average, to use that bandwidth?

5 - 7 hours easily. This is not the high quality stream though.

And by awesome UX I was mostly referring to nearly latency free track skipping.
