Despite the fact that unlimited Internet has become generally available today, the need to monitor traffic consumption has not disappeared anywhere. This is due to the widespread use of Internet modems, so often used for laptops and smartphones, where the tariff does not always allow you to use the Internet in a relaxed way, without fear that after the traffic is consumed, the speed will drop or you will have to overpay.
One of the best traffic accounting tools for personal computers with Windows installed is the Networx program. Its main advantages are free and Russian-language interface, which makes it accessible and understandable.
Of the additional advantages of Networx, it should be noted that this program does not require installation, is capable of uploading reports to Excel and allows you to configure the traffic quota for certain periods of time.
In addition to the standard traffic meter available in the Android operating system, there are a number of special programs that not only implement this function, but also provide many other useful information related to access to the network.
Of the programs that have a Russian-language interface, 3G Watchdog is worth noting. This utility allows you to monitor traffic and is able to control its consumption. If the specified limit is exceeded, the program will notify you about this by vibration of the device on which it is installed or by special color signals.
A good alternative to the previous program is the Traffic Monitor widget. By adding it to your desktop, you will always be aware of your traffic consumption and Internet connection speed. Also, this widget has the function of stopping applications that consume too much traffic, which is useful in case of unexpected updates for the user.
Traffic on iOs
With the release of iOs 7, it has become much easier to control traffic consumption in Apple products. This happened in the course of innovations, when it became possible not only to view statistics, but also to see which applications consume the most traffic.
The existence of this possibility does not exclude a commercial, software solution to the problem of traffic accounting. One of these solutions is the Download Meter application, which is the result of the efforts of a Russian developer, which provided the program not only with a Russian-language interface, but also with a complete help in Russian.
But for connoisseurs of aesthetics and high-quality design, an alternative option is suitable - an application called DataMan. This program not only monitors traffic and predicts its consumption, but also does it beautifully. When warning about the consumption of the package, the application will be colored in different colors, from green to red, depending on the amount of used traffic.
