      Sky Usage Tool

      Is the Sky Broadband usage tool accurate? I have recently bought a PS3 and been on Modern Warfare online quite a bit. I have kept checking the usage tool. A few days ago I was below 4GB, tonight I got a 75% warning? I am about 3 weeks into my months usage period. I have DU Meter on my laptop which shows an average of 3/4 GB a month. Obviously the PS3 isn't included on that but it gives me a good idea. Once again, within a week or so it went from about 35% used to 80% used. The days left seem accurate so I'm a bit confused.

      I think you should assume the meter is accurate as it's likely to be the figure upon which Sky calculate your monthly bandwidth use.
