How to monitor network data use on Surface Pro?

rcook12

Is there a way to keep track of how much data I’m using on a Surface Pro (Windows 8)? I don’t want to face an unpleasant surprise and get hit by overage charges when I get my monthly internet bill due to using my Surface to work at home.

At the risk of sounding like an old ad line from Microsoft’s competition, there is an app that does that called, appropriately, Network Usage. It’s free and you can check it out here: http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/network-usage/1620e911-4b97-40de-b79a-8c4d736d5c5b
