What is broadband-usage?

Broadband-usage meters the traffic on an SNMP-enabled broadband modem/router and then lets you find out your usage by calendar month. It's main purpose is to let you know what your usage is without having to resort to your ISP's website and without having to trust their accounting. If they get their accounting wrong (which can happen), this software gives you data that you might be able to use when contesting the invoice.
