Watching your data transfer rates can be very enlightening no matter what you do online, and you'll soon be wondering how you managed without DU Meter before.
If you have teenage children or if you own or manage a small business, you already know how hard it is to enforce certain Internet usage limits. DU Meter can monitor network use and report via email, or directly block network connections if preset monthly limits are exceeded. Many broadband Internet users believe their "unlimited" account is truly unlimited. However, Internet Service Providers often have definite usage limits, even though they may advertise to the contrary. Some will take drastic measures like account termination without any advance warning if these limits are exceeded. DU Meter will help you prevent that. It can even base its reports and alerts directly upon your traffic costs if your provider charges by the megabyte.
