Many times you want to keep an eye on your connection. How much downloaded? or how much uploaded? or to check the amount of bandwidth consumed at an interval. There are many freewares for this and I’ll try to review some on my blog. This is the first one. If you spend a lot time being online or are deep into file sharing then this is the choice for you. Especially useful on torrents and you have limited quota per month.
History – Displays the statistics for hour, day, weeks and month basis. The chart is displayed in very visually friendly manner.
Alerts – Bitmeter can be configured to notify you when certain events occur. These notifications are managed via the Alerts Manager screen, accessible via the Alerts… option on the main menu.

This is a free file hosting service. They just host files and not any website. The day since they started , they have changed. And changed in good way. I see good download and upload speeds there. The best thing I like is that you can resume your download. If somehow your connection breaks or you want to stop it for some reason, you can resume it from where you stopped.
Site looks a bit incomplete as there is nothing written on “FAQ” page. Also there is no page listing all their features. You can also upload via FTP. This is only allowed if you register to the site. Registration is free. This is a big plus as you can resume uploads also. If your FTP client supports scheduling then you can schedule your uploads. Its good to do that during night time as you won’t be surfing.
So the features what I figured out as followed :-
Unlimited File size
No restriction on File type
Good Upload and download speeds
FTP upload (For registered users only)
Resume supported uploads and downloads
Downside may be for Firefox lovers. It doesn’t work in Firefox. You have to open the file in Internet Explorer only. Thats not a big deal when you get so much features for free.
