Increasingly low bandwidth caps instituted by both home and mobile providers are turning bandwidth monitoring into more of a necessity and less of a novel experiment. How do you monitor your bandwidth?

This week we want to hear all about how you monitor your network usage. How do you keep tabs on your home network? How do you keep tabs on your mobile phone or other cellular devices? If you don’t monitor one but monitor the other, we want to hear about that too. What apps, tools, and tricks do you use?

Sounds off in the comments with your bandwidth monitoring technique and then check back in on Friday for the What You Said roundup to see how your fellow readers are monitoring their bandwidth.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
