This is all incorrect. 2kbps wont give you any type of audible streaming audio.

At 128kbps, you will use 60MB per hour.
Streaming 24/7 for 30 days on an average high quality station will actually use 43,200MB, or 42 gigs, of data.
At the lowest quality audio (24kbps) you would use about 10 megabytes per hour. Or 7 gigs if you were to stream 24/7 for 30 days straight.
