I was wondering if there is a program (preferably free) that will measure your internet usage in MB or GB same way as Verizon measures your usage?
My friend has a smart phone and he is using it as a modem to use his laptop on the road. He says it works very well but is limited to 5 GB per month without having penalties.
What i am thinking is..............i can measure my average use on my PC during like a 3-5 day time period and see if the 5 GB limit is enough PRIOR to committing to the phone and plan.
Hope i make myself understandable lol...................any help would be appreciated
Theres stuff like DUMETER but its a pay program. It shows you speed in real time supposedly and also logs how much stuff you downloaded and other stats. You can also set the day obviously when the period starts to log how much you download and then set alerts after you hit a certain amount. There are short term alerts -- several hours etc and long term alerts for several days or months etc.
I searched for a free program once but got sick of bogus free programs. You go to a zillion sites and the links are usually broken or what they mean by free is a shareware trial program you can use free for 10 days or something like that. I think DUMETER also has a trial period.
Net Meter looks very similar to DU Meter and is free.
That does look good very similar to DUMETER. I thought I used it before but maybe it was another program with a similar name. I used it years ago and it was huge and clunky not small and compact like DUmeter.
If you only use one computer for those 3-5 days, and don't really turn it off then I suggest NetStat Live by AnalogX. Great program, easy to use, but it only records activity on the computer you are using it on.
