I've been reading thru a few of the posts about the usage moniter but cant find the info i want.

I have a Mac so I am only able to use the firefox plug-in

Question: Does this show off peak and on peak data usage. it just seems to be adding all my data up into 1 bundle and charging me for the "free off-peak GB" (I think)

Any Mac users out there having same problem, or is there some other way i can view my data usage

Thanks

Hello yeeeahboy,

Currently the firefox plugin doesnt show peak/off peak. Not sure myself when the plugin will be updated at this time.

If you happen to have Windows installed on your machine through Parallels or VMware Fusion, you can use the updated monitor.  That's the only way I've been able to keep track of my usage.

For those of you with web-space that has php enabled, I have written a small script that will poll your usage like the firefox extension. You can then see how much you have used from within any browser, anywhere. 

It does not show peak/off peak data usage, and i can not guarantee it will always work etc. 

If you would like a copy, PM me

{edit} it now shows peak/off peak and sent/recieved
