Based on my experience running a node, first at 20 kB/s and now at 64 kB/s, 
I'd say it's better to keep it at 50 kB/s on all the time. But if your 
bandwidth cap is less than 50 kB/s, it may be better to hibernate. I get full 
64 kB/s throughput some of the time, and not much the rest. I don't know if 
that means someone's downloading a big file and happened to pick me, or if 
there's a daily rhythm to the network usage.
