Well, 1 GB is the total bandwith u can spend in a whole month. Whenever u open a site, say yahoo, data is sent to ur pc from some server. Again data such as ur usename and password, user preferences, etc. go from ur computer to yahoo’s server. So some amount of data is transferred. Got it? (And how is that transferred? Via satellites or marine underwater cables.) if this amount of data transferred is 10 kilobytes (KB), then u have utilized 10 KB of ur bandwith. In this way…u can use ur bandwith upto 1 GB (or 1024 MB). Naturally, when u download large files from the net, ur bandwith usage also rises. Hope i could explain.
