That should more than enough to do that.

If its just email, messenger and googling, then you will probably lucky to use even half that amount.

Our office with 3 users pretty much constantly on email / web during business hours including saturdays and some overtime (:p) used about 3GB last month.

20GB should be tonnes!

Running dialup 56kps, have similar use and just done a monthly log to decide what broadband offers to accept. Briefly was on dial up about 60 hours and total usage was just under 1GB. Do not play games on internet, this could push usage well up.Biggest usage is downloading updates. Here on Xtra with a 24/7 programme Xtra only log the monthly hours and trying to get an actual usage figure is like trying to draw hen's teeth.
Suggest at end of first month get your friend to check her account for usage and then adjust to suit, my guess would be 2-3 GB

I have a 10GB cap, I go over, BUT unless she is getting MASSES of LARGE emails, I doubt it very much...
