How so?  You're calculating the number of bytes send during the
*last*two*hours*.  If you slow down sending (a lower rate) then
the total amount will be lower.

In extremis:  if you stop sending traffic at all and do the calculation
again after two hours, the total will become 0.  This is true because
you didn't send any byte *during*the*last*two*hours*.
