BSNL broadband is still the most popular and widely used broadband service in India. BSNL brought the low cost and high speed broadband service in India (Though we are still far slower than other developed countries). Many people use BSNL‘s fixed traffic plans, we need to keep eyes on our usages in these plans. (Though I am on unlimited plan, I use (love) to track how many GBs I have downloaded till now.)

There are many ways to check the usages. Here I am giving a list of good software, sites, and services to check how much internet you have used.

Official links.

Now this is the best and important part of this post.

1. SMS Alert:
This is the official service, which sends SMS and E-Mail alerts for usages.
You can register yourself for the service at http://bbusage.bsnl.in/

2. DataFox – Firefox and Chrome Browser Plug-in.
DataFox is nice Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome plug-in which shows the BrandBand usages in browser itself. Its very nice and handy utility. No need to check any special software or no need to visit any URL for checking the usages. Just give the login credentials to plug-in and the plug-in will automatically fetch and display the usages in browser status bar.
You can download and install DataFox from TheGoan.com/DataFox/
