      SkyUser Bandwidth Meter Features

      Some of the features built into our Bandwidth Meter

      • Completely free of charge to download and for our members and guests to use
      • Basic or Advanced* stats available
      • See your current download / upload speed from your PC desktop
      • Setup alerts that will notify you when your bandwidth usage limit is exceeded
      • Extensive statistics on how much data has been downloaded and when - see a live example here
      • Includes network tools like ping, traceroute and even an email notifier as well as a link to our Broadband Speedtest
      • You can monitor and set alerts on multiple PCs that you have at home and add to the statistics page, ideal for keeping an eye on all the PCs in your home


      *Advanced reporting would mean that you have to enter your postcode and also setup a username (your email address) and a password, so that others could not add extra PCs to your statistics. No information regarding where you may have visited would be recorded. This option is entirely your choice and if you choose not to do so, you could see basic stats on your desktop in this application. This information would not be used or sold on to third parties. It is just merely a way of identifying your account with the advanced statistics. And not used for any other purpose.

      At present this is in Open Beta and there may be issues that we have not found yet.

      ummm

      Helpful post.

      Does NetMeter give you a screen on the internet to show your friends or someone who may be helping you, your stats?

      This is a long term project and more features will be added over time. Plus you can add multiple PC's to your account, so you can keep an aggregate of all your PC usage. Long term I believe, this will be tied in with your router, to get an indication of all traffic passing through your WAN - presented online.

      Which is something I believe NetMeter does not do. And Rome wasn't built in a day!

      Net Meter will only keep a recorded usage of the PC it is on, this will be a total usage of the connection (I think)

      So all PC's, games consoles, PDA's etc connected to the line. Better than Net Meter if you have a limited usage that you do not want to go over and use multiple machines.

      Hi there,

      I have a question does this software just record upload and download from computer it is installed on, or the router itself.

      I only asking as my daughters touch and laptop are wireless and doesn't run through my computer to the network but straight to router.

      Thanks

      Re: SkyUser Bandwidth Meter Features

      If you install the software on each PC you can then add all of the separate PCs to just the one account. So that you can keep a running tally.
