Re: Bell Usage Meter counting LAN data?

LAN doesn't count. He could show you his daily used to see what's going on.

So, he could copy and paste this "daily used" thingy to me? What program would that be or is it gathered from a Bell website, url?

It's on the Bell website, he needs a account "Log in to My Bell".

Thank you kovy. Since I can't access it and he's at work (unreachable) would the information include detailed info like Mac Addresses (in case a hacker took over wifi) and all traffic history? Kudoed!

Yeah, it's not detailed enough. It's only shows download and upload each day.

Just the GIG totals?

I presume a customer can gain access to the real traffic while disputing the usage? Has anyone done that? Surely Bell can't just state you did X amount of traffic, pay up without seeing what machines and what kind of traffic it was.... Judge, jury and executioner?

Yeah only the gigs each day.

Gain acces to real trafic... no.

Best west is geting your own router that counts WAN traffic and compare it to bell.

And this is why CAPs are a big problem...

Wow,that's pathetic. I'm going to insist he gets onto TekSavvy Cable, like I am using. 300 GIG and I swear they don't even bother counting the usage. Also have Unlimited but no need really.

They don't bother yet, cause they don't have a usage tracking for now I beleive.

But teksavvy or any other wholesales ISP is usually generous with CAPs.
