Hello All

My old man wants to find out how much in Mega Bytes my brother is downloading as he is always going over his monthly rate.... being an old fart he does not want to pay more but he wants to find out how much he is going over by.

I am interested also interested as it would be a cool tool to use. Does anyone know any free software or coding which i can use to help with my old mans question?

Are you talking about measuring how much is downloaded from a residential ISP?
Never knew an ISP that had a monthly limit.. weird..

There should be plenty of software available. Did you try to search google?
Also try download.com

Alternatively, if you have a router, look into the router software to see if they have any reporting tools.

Might be a different country thing. Hardly. Unless it's China, it's a company thing.
