Average Data DL & UL whist Playing WoW

Hey folks, coming to that time of year again were i can reinstall WoW and get playing

I was wondering how much data is used when playing WoW on a average session, Im asking this cos i want to play WoW when im at work on a 3 mobile broadband stick

Obviously i will download all patches at home to save usage but is this a feasible option?

I think there is a program called DUmeter that allows you to monitor a network connection so you can get an overall picture of the traffic, might be an idea to try it on your home desktop machine to get an idea of what the bandwidth requirements are before you try the 3g connection.

I dont have any experience with these 3g things so no idea what the latency will be, but I suspect it will be high.

Windows: "Where do you want to go today?"
Linux: "Where do you want to go tomorrow?"
FreeBSD: "Are you guys coming, or what?"

I don't know about the average data transfer rate but I've read about others using mobile broadband - expect pings of 300-500 connecting to EU servers.
