      Measuring download limit?

      Hi,

      Does Sky have an online control panel that shows your connection usage, to help you not go over the monthly limits?

      If not, is there a recommended freeware application?

      Thanks

      Floob.

      As far as I know, Sky don`t do a Meter. Use `NETMETER` which is freeware, been using it for 2yrs, its very good.

      Thanks, I'll try that and see how I get on.
      This one also looks promising.

      I'm thinking I shouldn't point my parents towards iPlayer as they are on Sky Base. I read sky are lenient on usage, but I dont want to take the ****.
