      Does Sky provide usage stats for capped users?

      Can Sky provide capped users with a monthly usage log or is there a section on the Sky site where customers can view an up to date snapshot of their downloaded amount for the month??

      Would like to know how close I am getting toward my 40gb limit, have got Tautology running on my PC but its not known to be entirely accurate.

      As far as I know Sky do not provide anything like this, although it would be handy if they did. All you can do for now is to install a download metre, there are plenty of free ones out there.

      So does that mean that Sky will not be able to tell me how much of my 40gb i have used in any given month?

      That is right Intadon, they will not be able to tell you how much you have used each month although if you go a long way over your limit regually they might send you a warning letter. If you want to check how much you use all you can do is install some software as mentioned earlier in the thread.
