Does anyone know of some free good Broadband usage meeter software that will work with a Telecom Data card when the user is in Austraila.

the aircard watcher has a usage meter in the tools tab, you would just need to reset it before wanting to tally the usage for that period

Thanks I currently do that, but I was wondering if Telecom provides some better software to track it for me and maybe report month to month usage.

you can subscribe to Telecom's all-new usage metre, which telecom says in the T's and C's that it can withdraw for any reason with no notification, and also may charge for at a later date, but I doubt it will be any good for Australia.

The usage meter has been around for some time (one year plus at least). The charges discussed mostly refer to the cost of the text message (which is typical of most text message services). You can get the alerts sent to an email address.

No, it won't work for Australia, because roaming data is not counted as part of your mobile data allowance/bundle. You're better off using the Aircard data counter or a 3rd party data counter.
