Hi Folks,

AT&T is setting a download limit. To determine if this is going to be a problem I need to get an estimate of the average seti work unit file size.

Any help would be appreciated.

A work unit is about 325kb.
There are two parts to the returned results file, one is about 30kb, and the other appears to be less than 10k in size.

Astropulse work units are 8 MB, but they are not released all the time.
