    "DOES EXACTLY WHAT IS NEEDED, SIMPLY AND QUICKLY!"

    May 22, 2011  |   By FLASHZIP

    Pros

    I am using a "pay as you go" 4G modem that actually does not have a usage meter to guide me, and this is PERFECT. Also totals this up for the year. If you have to stay under a certain usage level to keep from being "throttled", this is a great help!

    Cons

    NOT ANY FOR ME!

    Summary

    If you are on unlimited dial-up and have no idea how much bandwidth you consume monthly, this tool is GREAT. With it, you can tell how much bandwidth you would need (at minimum), if you were to go to a pay-as-you-go super fast 4G plan. I now know that it does NOT pay to use the very fast (BUT VERY EXPENSIVE) 4G modem access for daily leisurely surfing, but only when speed is of an essence or when a wireless connection is absolutely necessary.

    Also, most wireless carriers that offer UNLIMITED service often "throttle" your usage after a certain bandwidth usage per payment cycle, and their offer then shifts from "all you want" to "all that you can manage to get" after they slow down your connection to dial-up speed! With this tool, you can effectively "stay-under" that unadvertised (but easy to determine through user blogs, .etc) punishment point!
