I have met over hundreds of people who want to know how much data they are using on a daily basis or monitor data usage on their PC. Especially when the data pack is limited like mine. Here My internet provider, Allows me to use 40GB data per month.
So I need a bandwidth meter to make sure, The data limit is on my control and I don't have to pay additional charges for data overages. Hay, I'm talking about Bandwidth monitor software not Device.
However, There are hundreds of people who want to know how to monitor how much data they are using, This week or even this month to make sure that they don't have to pay extra charges for overage use and risk of data connection disconnect at the end of the month.
