Internet monitor

Keep an eye on your computer's Internet connection.

Keep It Up provides people with a way to monitor their Internet connections to ensure they are getting the best performance possible. While its simple functionality is great, the program has a limited appeal for computer users.

The program has a very simple interface that most people should find fairly intuitive. It primarily consists of a small screen with two bar-style meters monitoring Internet productivity. Beyond that, there are options for minimizing and bringing the box to the top, as well as a calendar option. Users unclear of what is happening can visit the Help file, but should be prepared for a disappointingly brief document. The program was simple to understand, thanks in part to its simplicity. The two meters showcase how many kilobytes are being used to download and to upload information. This function gave us a good indication of how our Internet connection was faring. One additional function we would have liked would be a way to fine-tune our connection, but Keep It Up is only a monitoring tool. This basic program offers few features. The one that stands out is a calendar that shows how much time Windows has been running that day.

This 15-day trial performed well by simply showcasing our Internet connection and we see it as a good download for anyone wanting a quick glance at their online performance, though its limited abilities may not appeal to everyone.
