My parents were migrated to a Sky unlimited ADSL package from O2. I'm trying to work out if they'd be better elsewhere but to do so I need to know how much they're using. Their Sky account gives no usage information online, is there any other way of working it out? They have a number of non-computer devices using the connection so it's not possible to determine usage at the device level. Can you tell anything from the router?
This is an advantage of BT's service where they have a web page showing usage.
I would check on the skyuser.co.uk site to see if anyone has found a way of querying the Sky router/Sky Hub, but I think its a long shot as these routers are pretty dumb and don't have any visible statistic counters (or SNMP).
tbbMeter and similar tools only work for Windows PCs, don't help with mobile devices (tablets/phones) or game consoles that are now the big users of data.
