      I use a program called DU Meter. Its a very small program that gets loaded at startup, and provides useful stats.

      Hmm didnt realise it was both download and upload...bugger. This is the first time I have exceeded the 40GB limit. Will keep an eye on my useage, and see if I exceed it next month as well. If I do it maybe worthwhile upgrading to the max service.

      Does anybody know, if I upgrading, will I have to start a new 12 month contract? Or will it just be a rolling 12 months from when I first started?
