Dear all,

How do I determine how much data (in MB) that i have downloaded this month/since i got the internet? I wanna see how much i download each month so that i can determine whether i need to have an uncapped service (at the moment i have virgins 512kb connection for £24.99/month) but i could downgrade to the same connection speed but with a 3gb download limit for £17.99/month.

Therefore is there any record of how much i have downloaded on the computer anywhere?

Have you looked in your 'Download' folder?

unfortunately, it is not as simple as that. every time you access a website you "download" the page to your screen. much like wap services on your mobile phone, you are charged for the webpages you download to your phone per mb.

so, yes i could check my downloads folder but it will not tell me everything.
