It is, from what I understand, how much bandwidth you can use per month I'm guessing. So if you visit a page that is, say, 1mb in size, that takes away 1mb of you 40gb limit. Same goes for downloading. Using the web for surfing doesn't take much resources at all (I don't know exactly the average size per page), neither does gaming, so you should be find depending on how much you download/use the web.

You have 40Gb download limit. Meaning if you downloaded a movie that was 2GB, you have 38GB left for the month. If you go over, your ISP will more than likely charge you.

Web pages are like peanuts. Same with music. I can't imagine somebody downloading 60GB worth of music a month. You will rack up your usage by downloading movies and such..
