It's often useful or informative to be able to find out how much internet bandwidth your computer has been using. Perhaps because you need to keep within the limits set by your ISP, or because you're using someone else's wifi network and you promised you wouldn't overstay your welcome. Or perhaps you want to use it to provide an insight into what exactly the rest of your family get up to when they're supposed to be working on a business spreadsheet or a homework essay.
Networx is a useful utility for Windows which tracks your network usage. You can monitor any network connection available on your PC, including wired, wifi and cellular. And you can track by user too. Plus, you can view all the data in a series of pretty graphs and tables, or export it to Excel for later analysis.
Networx is free (strictly donationware), and available in both 32- and 64-bit versions. It's also available as a portable program, for easy installation (there isn't any) and removal. The download is at https://www.softperfect.com/products/networx/ and the program is malware-free according to VirusTotal and Web of Trust.
