Just another small addition I just got from the php manual:
You can use readfile() instead of fpassthru() so you don't have to use fopen().
pseudo code updated:
if ( used_bandwith + filesize > allowed_bandwidth)
write_in_database(used_bandwith = used_bandwith + filesize)
Theres always something to learn in PHP Land.
