Editors' Review

+

It's not going to win any design awards, but this handy program for monitoring your PC's bandwidth usage offers a nice set of features. BitMeter's floating graph with simple text displays for real-time downloads and uploads is easy to follow. You can customize the display's color and transparency.

Considering its size, BitMeter provides an impressive amount of options and information. You can view summaries of network activity with hourly, daily, and monthly breakdowns, or receive audio notifications that can be set by transfer size and direction. The built-in calculator is useful for computing the speed and size of download and upload activities. You can create automatic or manual backups of the program to easily restore history and settings, and there's an ISP Restrictions configuration panel that can configured with a minimum of hassle.

This freebie is easy enough for any user looking for a simple and effective tool for monitoring network activity.

    "Bitmeter 2. Does what it says on the tin."

    April 22, 2014   |   By con747

    Version: BitMeter 2 3.5.10

    Pros

    Can keep you on top of your download limit so your not caught out when you really need it.

    Cons

    Not sure if any yet.

    Summary

    So far so good, but i still have to wait and see just how accurate the data monitoring actually is.Two or three months of use should be enough time to gauge it.

    "Bit Meter for monitoring bandwidth usage."

    April 21, 2014   |   By d_jasic

    Version: BitMeter 2 3.5.10

    Pros

    Ease of set up.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Summary

    Set up was easy and I am no computer whiz kid. Based on the activities going on with my computer the data presented seems to be accurate with an easy to use interface.

    Prior to installing this usage meter I had installed and deleted several other meters from this site in the previous few hours. They presented usage numbers that made no sense based on what I was doing.

    This usage meter I am keeping!

    "This is the sweetest little tool"

    January 03, 2013   |   By Kcoolbreeze

    Version: BitMeter 2 3.5.10

    Pros

    Tells me everything I wanted to know about what my browser habit's add up too.
    Small footprint program.
    Works well as an icon in the notification area.
    Works just fine on my 64 bit win 7 (I believe I needed to grant it admin rights (to the opening reviewer I say that too))
    I wish I could write a program so cool

    Cons

    lol, why isn't this type of tool already inside windows....oh yeah.

    Summary

    Knowledge is power.
    Find out how much you use.
    Nothing is for free.

    "A good idea, but doesn't work on Windows 7 64 bit"

    September 07, 2012   |   By JeffreyE

    Version: BitMeter 2 3.5.10

    Pros

    Appears to have all of the right features, and installed easily on my computer.

    Cons

    On my computer, all I end up with is an animated graph with no labeling of either the x or y axis. The menu pops up over the graph on an odd, faded way, but can not be accessed by either mouse or keyboard. I uninstalled it.

    Summary

    I wish it worked on my computer. It looks like a nifty little utility.
