    Of course it will.

    When you listen to streaming media .. you actually download the song on the fly ..
    data keeps getting downloaded .. and as soon as it's downloaded .. it's converted to audio.
    Hence .. the bottomline .. it will reduce your balance.

    well it is the biggest consumer of ur limit after game download. even radio of launchcast takes up lot of data and video will take a lot more. for chking this open ur lan status and chk the data transferred. this will tell u how much u have consumed.

    Yes Its Absolutely reduce you download limit
    here is simple calculation
    If you listening 128Kbps streaming. that means your PC transfer 128 Kilo byte data per second.
    If you listen it for 1 minute (60 Seconds)
    128 Kb X 60 Sec.= 7680 Kb (7.5 MB)

    It takes 7.5 MB data transfer to listen 1 minute Streaming.
    Now calucalte MTNL bill your self.

    Hey Y2ki dude...ur calculation is slightly wrong....when we say 128kbps we mean 128 kilo bits per second.........so 1 minute of listening to 128kbps streaming will download only
    128*60=7680kb=7680/8 KB=960KB
    ie =0.9375 MB...........;););)
