Question

Bandwidth Program

Most of the telephone email companies sell their internet usage by the gigabyte. I am considering dropping Frontiernet as my home internet provider since they have gotten so expensive and using a mobile provider. I am retired and use the computer all day, mostly for emails and to check on sites, I never download movies or play internet games, how can I check my usage in GB? I live away from the city so Frontier is the only hardwired option. There must be freeware programs to do this.

My mom

Got Netzero and she went with the 15 buck a month plan. To check usage she looks at a web page on that. No extra apps to install.

Not What I'm Looking For

I'm not looking for a plan with a built in app, I'm looking for a program for my desktop that will tell me how many GB of internet usage (calculated as the mobile phones are calculated) I'm using. I will stay on this plan for another month to find out.

I haven't found any to be exact.
