Hi can anyone tell me if there is any way of checking how much internet usage you may have left or what you have used dureing the month? At the moment i am with BT Option 1. On thier website it gives this example: With Option 1's 2GB monthly usage guideline you could, for example:

Download 10 music tracks per week
Watch 4 minutes of video/ trailers per week
Download 1 movie per month
I am never to sure how much music or film clips the kids download and dont realy want an email or letter from bt saying your over your limit.

Thanks in advance.

I am with EFH broadband and they dont provide an online check however most places will happily tell you if you call them up.

I have used this in the past and it does it for you. click here my current ISP Zen has the info on my account updated daily.

I find it odd that an ISP does not provide a 'Show my usage' facility for a capped service. Are you sure there isn't one if you view your account?

My provider doesnt have one thats for sure. They use some rubbish about it not being best to implement any one particular method. However Every other ISP I have used implemented one or another system. Most places have a free phone number anyway. Also usually the over use charges are quite cheap. My ISP is £1 per GB.

I have been into my account on the bt website and they tell you in the help section that there is not away of persnally monitoring your usage they monitor it internally and will contact you if you go over your limit, and will offer an opion that is more inkeeping with your needs or the same as Creature of the Nite they allso charge a £1 a gig for over use.
