Bandwidth Consumption

Recommended Posts

I'm changing my home Internet Provider next month,.. and want to monitor my bandwidth consumption during the next few weeks to determine my average monthly usage,.. the service plan I'm looking at has a usage cap of 250GB per month,..

 

Can anyone recommend a good usage meter, data tracker software,.. or used NetWorx :  https://www.softperfect.com/products/networx/manual/?lang=English

The modem included with current service has no bandwidth metering options.

I'm running W7,..

 

I would only need to meter one computer for a few weeks doing daily tasks to estimate my usage,.. I watch Netflix set at HD and use Steam a few times a week,..  both use a ton of bandwidth while normal daily usage internet surfing I guess would not use much,..   :dunno:

Just wondering, when you stream a movie on Netflix, dose it use as many gb's as say if you download the movie to watch it ? I have unlimited downloads so I never really paid much notice to it.

Thanks guys,.. I went with the NetWorx software,.. and it is vary easy to set up, I'm monitoring my router now so all computers in house are being metered.

 

Like Waco said I will never use 250GB a month,.. I watched a few movies on Netflix on HD it's 3GB per hour, and Ultra HD it is 7GB per hour,.. haven't checked Steem yet,.. and just normal usage web surfing I used 88.1MB last night.
