BitMeter II – freeware bandwidth meter tracks your broadband use


BitMeter II is a freeware bandwidth monitoring program which shows upload and download speeds, usage totals per day/week/month and alerts to let you know if and when you get close to your monthly ISP limit or specific speeds. Pretty useful tool to have around these days (especially if you’re suffering from slow patches in your connection and the ISP wants proof).

 BitMeter 2 is a bandwidth meter, it allows you to visually monitor your internet connection by displaying a scrolling graph that shows your upload and download speed over time. BitMeter is freeware – ie. it is given away completely free of charge, there is no trial period, no time-limited features, no spyware, and no adware, guaranteed.

  • Cool freebie! But what do you do to track bandwidth used by your VoIP phone system? This is where I'm concerned about ISP's limiting bandwidth before charging extra.

  • NNNewman, you can't track VoIP phone usage through your modem as it's interfaced directly with that. You'd need to contact your provider to ask them to tell you, it's really the only way.
