Help with Net Meter broadband usage

  tardis100 07:32 25 Jul 12

Hope I'm in the right Forum. I want to monitor my broadband usage and have just downloaded Net Meter but Help! I just cannot understand what it is doing. I'm not interested in speeds all I want to know is at the end of the day or session how much of my 10GB allowance I have used. Any help would be gratefully received. Thanks.

There appears to be two programs with that name, one with a space (Net Meter) and a free one without space (NetMeter). Which one do you have?

I use Free ThinkBroadband's meter. Once set up with details it tells me how much of my monthly allowance I've used when I hover cursor over icon. Various alarms can be set to alert me and it gives a full log of daily, monthly usage etc. (though I have disabled the Automatic file sending testing feature)

NetMeter see here

Look in totals and reports for your uploads and downloads

You can set a warning for when you approach your limit

Thanks lotvic and Fruit Bat hadn't realised there were 2 with such similar names and I mustn't have the free one because I keep being asked to "buy" so I'm just about to delete Net Meter and look for NetMeter and also your suggestion lotvic. Sorry to seem 'absent' but it's been a busy day - now I'm back and will sort something out. Really appreciate the help. Many thanks.
