    Sorry about the long line but:

    webcopy --depth=2 -R -c
    --post='SMENC=ISO-8859-1&SMLOCALE=US-EN&USER='"$USER"'&PASSWORD='"$PASSWORD"'&target=https://www.telecom.co.nz/je
    tstreamum/xtra&smauthreason=0' http://www.telecom.co.nz/xtralogin.fcc

    Similar command with wget or curl.
    Alternatively just navigate to the above with your browser.

    If your with Paradise.Net goto their webpage. www.paradise.net.nz Login
    and check your internet usage. Shows traffic usage for the month. But
    thats for cable not adsl.

    I like this one.

    However, international and local is billed differently, so log into the
    members area and look there for a more accurate reading.

    This is by far the best application for keeping tabs on your internet usage...

    Traffic Usage Checker
    http://4g.virtual.net.nz/tuc/

    Written by a New Zealander for New Zealand ISPs.

    It works bloody well. Shows a little percentage % indicator in your system
    tray and you can set it to update hourly or do it manually etc.

    From the page you linked it appears that it only works with Jetstream. The
    OP only said that he had "cable". It may not be Jetstream. I guess it
    doesn't work with UBS either.....

    Not sure about a software solution, but does your ISP provide
    a means on their website to check yer account usage? It would
    be pretty rare (and poor) to not have such a feature...

    Ok, thanks. The page was a little misleading. maybe it was written when you
    had the choice of Jetstream or Jetstream. :)
