Keeping count of downloaded data ?

  celticbhoy0 20:15 04 May 2004

I have just subscribed to a broadband internet conection that gives me 2G of data to download a month (Cost is Everything). I would like to know if anyone knows of a utility that will keep an eye on how much data has been downloaded on a PC using XP with four users ?

Dont know, isn't there something on the member part of the isp?

Just that they charge if you go over the 2G limit. ISP is freeserve

Good question celticbhoy0 - that's exactly what I thought I'd need when I go BB on a limited connection.

Must be others who have already dealt with this! Any ideas

Just found this - click here - Internode Monthly Usage Meter.

right idea, just it will only work for the ISP who it is designed for

Found these as well - DU meter ($20) - click here (which can allegedly do what we're asking) & RAS Graph & Stats v1.20 (freeware & intriguingly only present on a forum!) - click here.

You're right about Internode - didn't read about it properly initially.

A few more...Bandwidth Meter - click here - ($25 - with free trial), CostAware Free Edition - click here, Down2Home (freeware) - click here. Wonder which is the most accurate of the lot.

Thinking about what poogles_uk said earlier. Surely there must be something provided (by the ISP) to be able to check/monitor this usage on one's account, just like one can do with most dialup time-limited usage. Have you checked the Freeserve website or asked them if this present?

Just in case anyone is interested the best of the free monitors is DOWN TO HOME

celticbhoy0 - Thanks for letting us know.

For some reason I couldn't d'load from the main site but could do so from here (if anyone has the same problem) - click here.

[It would be nice if I was thanked for my efforts in finding the programs above ; ) - must've inadvertently slipped your mind celticbhoy0!? Regards, G]
