Bandwidth Monitor

Monitor your bandwidth usage and internet speed.

Bandwidth Monitor, by Idyle Software, is a 32-bit software for Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 Professional, that monitors a network interface (modem, cable, adsl, lan network card) for the current speed, and measures the quantity of information uploaded from and downloaded to your computer.

Unique Advantages and Benefits!

Using the bandwidth monitoring, you can easily learn how much traffic you have sent and received, and thus avoid expensive overcharges from ISPs that limit their customers on their monthly bandwidth allowance! By using several types of events, Bandwidth Monitor will notify you when your bandwidth usage has reached a critical level.

The real time speed indicator, available both as a numeric display, a graph vs. time, and a tray icon indicator, lets you know at what speed data is transferred. Now you will know if that download, email retrieval or web page loading really aborted or froze, or is going on full speed.

Bandwidth Monitor also assists you in detecting possible intrusions. That upload meter is indicating activity on your connection, but you are doing nothing? Maybe someone is connected to your computer and downloading vital information from your hard disk?
