      How to find out daily/monthly usage?

      Hi, quick question,

      Is it possible on the sky website at all to find out how much bandwidth has been used so far in a month? I'm currently using Netmeter to monitor my own laptops usage but theres no way to monitor the whole housholds total usage that month.

      so, is there a way?

      oh i've also got a bit of a side question if thats ok.. do we get off-peak usage? someone i know gets like 5x more traffic usage during between midnight and 5pm

      in answer to both your questions is simply no!
      1) sky do not provide any means of monitoring your bandwidth.
      2) Sadly there are no off peak times with sky.

      Hope that helps.

      As ricky says via the website - no. However you could install netmeter on all the pcs and do a little maths
      Hopefully following the betatesting Skyuser will be able to offer a solution in the not too distant future.

      Again no, you get the full whack all the time. However (again) as you are on mid you are subject to the monthly dl limit of 40gb. No one has yet been penalised for going over but rumour has it this may soon change.
      An upgrade to max would cost you 5/month, whether that would be advantageous only you can answer

      You can find plenty of bandwidth monitors online that show how much you are using - Simply type in bandwidth monitor into Google and you will find a lot that are free and quite good.

      Remember that you will need a monitor on every machine connected and that it will not include any games consoles etc that you may use.

      Just add them up to keep a total going.
