UMet Overview

UMet is a Windows 7/Vista gadget for monitoring usage of your bandwidth allowance.
In its standard gadget mode, it’s a small, unobtrusive meter, while still offering a wealth of information including:

  1. your account name
  2. the percentage of quote used
  3. how far into your current billing cycle you are
  4. new version available for download (click to install)

When your usage exceeds the billing period, ie you’ve used 70% of your bandwidth quota in 50% of your billing period, the bar changes to orange.  When you’re over quota, the bar changes to red.
