      Re: Usage

      Sky offer no such facility at the moment, but then, they don't seem to be enforcing download limits anyway. I'd imagine that once they get to the point where they actually start enforcing download limits, they'll give their customers a means of checking how much they've download.

      Re: Usage

      There is no way to do this apart from measuring it yourself using a utility on your PC.

      See the Measuring your usgae section on the following page (bottom left)

      EDIT: Looks like I lost the race

      Re: Usage

      I and many others recommend Netmeter which can be found here:

      NetMeter 1.1.3 (stable) released


      It's simple and FREE.

      For some reason it does not appear in the Skyuser Tools and Tutorial section.
