broadband usage monitors

  yaesu 16:42 22 Feb 2005

Hi, a recent convert to broadband I'd like to monitor my usage so I know when I'm approaching my 'allowance'. Is there a program which would provide this info please? Preferably free of course!
Tnx, yaesu

If your ISP limits your usage, its only reasonable to expect them to provide you with this themselves. When I had a limited account with Claranet, a couple of years ago it must have been, I could log onto their website using my account name and password and instantly see a record of all my usage with running totals.

click here this is what I use - unfortunately all ISP's don't provide you with this. I'm with wanadoo and they don't - although I still don't think they are applying the limits yet.

Xania, yes they should! BT says 'we will be providing this facility' presumably when they start enforcing limits.
georgemac, tnx I'll try this until BT decide what they're doing!

If you type Down2Home into google you'll find a free programme that will do just what you want, giving daily and monthly totals

out of interest, is there a program that would work on a router, and let you know how much your downloading overall over a network?

i'd be quite interested in how much me and my mate get through!
