The PTR download was around 13gb total if I remember correctly. Blizz already said the background downloader will be active before the the servers are back online.

If you already downloaded the ~5 GB prepatch in the Background Downloader, then you'll only be downloading a 100 MB patch today (that contains things that's changed since the prepatch data went out, the installer software to put everything in it's place, and likely the game executable itself).

After the 4.6Gb dl is done (for US), and the game files are written, there's a further 1.6Gb to dl via the new streaming launcher

Another 1.6GB to download? Dammit. I'm on a 5GB a month data capped connection from At&t. (And no, there's nothing else out here I can get. I've looked.) And it's 26.4Kbps dial-up otherwise for the downloading.Guess I'll be packing up my machine and taking it to a friends house tonight.
