NetBalancer – cool freeware gives fine grain control over your Net connection


Most Internet connections tend to be coarse ‘one size fits all’ in terms of bandwidth allocation, so you’ll be grabbing the same amount of throughput for downloading emails as for playing games or downloading a large file. The free NetBalancer program gives you the power to tune your broadband to deliver custom bandwidth depending on the application.

So, for example, you can set your BitTorrent downloads at a lower priority, while giving your web browser maximum throughput and so on. Some ISPs already offer this kind of feature via their admin panel, but it’s good to see it now available to all, and for free. Note that the free version gives you 5 settings, the $29.95 Pro version is unlimited.


 Browse and do any internet activity comfortably even when your download manager or torrent client downloads huge files from internet – just lower their network priority with NetBalancer… You can use NetBalancer to set download/upload transfer rate priority for any applications and monitor their internet traffic. Applications with a higher network priority will gain more traffic bandwidth than those with a lower one.
