Hi

My ISP is putting in place a 40GB per month download limit, Im not exactly sure how much I use at present as I watch a load of music videos, youtube clips, mp3s, mmorpgs games and general web surfing, is there a program that I can download that can monitor my usuage and report back to me how much I use?

I want to know if im within the limits before I change over to the new contract as I dont want to be cut off half way though the month!

Hope you can help.

Ta

Usually an ISP provides a customer with access to this sort of information on their web site, using your account number.
So you don't get cut off half way thru the month. :thumbsup:

I have used a product called DU Meter for this, one of the few pieces of software that I feel is worth the cost (I use as much open source software as possible). I'm not even sure if there is an open source program for this. Time to do a little research

I use Network Magic which sends me a daily report of the useage of each computer. Sounds like what you are after. I have found it a great programme for lots of network related matters.

Get the free trial here: http://www.networkmagic.com/

Cheers

(BTW. If you decide it is for you, there is a coupon which will knock $6 off the price.)
