      You could install Netmeter on all the PCs, but it will not work on a games console. If you have been exceeding the limit you will be automatically upgraded to Unlimited which costs 7.50 with Sky Talk and 12.50 without..

      Net Meter - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

      If you have someone streaming then 2gb is nowhere near enough transfer. An Iplayer program of 1 hour duration takes up about 300mb (0.3gb) on it's own, if it's in HD that goes up to 700-1000mb (0.7-1gb).
      Your options would be to either get them to stop using streaming or upgrade your package to one which is suitable for streaming.
