Is there any way your parents could get a reading before commencing a timed session of FaceTime and then a reading afterwards? If not, and if you are the contact whom thy are FaceTimeing, could you get the readings at your end. ISP's vary as to how and when they display bandwidth usage and it might be a case of having to not use the broadband for a period to give the system time to update itself. You could repeat the test a 2nd time to verify its accuracy. Hope this helps if nobody else can give reliable statistics!

describes that one call is about 350 kb of data per call. It does not use much bandwidth, so unless you do it everyday, there should not be a problem.

One call using xxxx depends on how long the call is. Imhave used FaceTime successfully on a throttles wifi network that was regulated at 250 k bps. So do the math. Bps times seconds will give you a guide for how much bandwidth per minute you are using. I think. Somebody will know.
