Internet Data Usage Counter

Since Wanadoo, my current ISP, took over Freeserve I see they offer a monthly broadband package at £17.99, albeit with a 2GB cap on it. Does anybody know of a programme that would monitor the amount of data I use over a month or so to enable me to see if this 2GB cap would be suitable for me? It would be a potential saving of £10 per month compared to my existing deal if it would suffice!

Ummm, Im not sure I know of any. But do know that it can be quickly reached if you do a bit of downloading and visit a lot of webpages.

I am on a PayAsYouGo package with Metronet and have come across these click here Freeware
click here Freeware
click here Popular but not free

The first 2 should be adequate for what you want. I have used Down2Home and found it OK.

Down2Home looks like exactly what I need Dipso. Will download and try later. Thanks for the help, much appreciated!

Down2Home - I tried downloading the Lite version then i click on the mirror links/file name it just opens a blank .php thing in IE... do you know how i get around this?

Mmmm...same happens for me. I didn't have a problem when I downloaded it but it was a few months ago.

The only thing I notice is that it's showing as a Restricted Site (no-entry sign in bottom RHS of screen) and a warning about my security settings prohibiting running ActiveX controls?

  ste_bla 15:32 26 May 2004

That warning came up with me to damn it!

  ste_bla 15:38 26 May 2004 is in the restricted websites for some reason hmm..

  ste_bla 15:48 26 May 2004

I downloaded it somehow if you are anyone wants it im online at random times and i could send it to you via email or a IM if you have one...

This forum always comes up with the Restricted Site logo....:-)

However, I've every protection going and have never experienced any problems.

That includes, amongst many others, First Party Cookies enabled as Prompt and Blocking Third Party Cookies. I can still access websites despite the latter setting by clocking on Don't Allow when the warning panel comes up.
