First of all, I'm not all networking and tech but I do have a fair understanding about both. Now to business.
My mum and I are looking at better ISP's than our current one as currently, we aren't even getting dial up speed because it's that slow. So, I use a lot of Xbl, video streaming (e.g. youtube) and play a fair amount of multiplayer. What I need to know if how to measure how much data I'm using on a daily, weekly, fortnightly and month basis to determine how much data I'm using from just Xbl, video streaming and multiplayer so we can choose the right plan. My dad is too stubborn to go with a new provider unless I can somehow push to get a better ISP.
Dial up here starts at least 28.8kb/s and we can't even get up to 15kb/s.
Now keeping in mind, I'm from Australia and we have pretty crappy internet speed naturally. I've posted on my ISP's fourm about how I can do this and the moderators seem to be as useless as the ISP customer support themselves, so I figured to come here. So my question is, how can I can I measure how much data my Xbox 360 Slim is using for all services on Xbl on a daily, weekly, fortnightly and monthly basis? Will I have to bridge my laptop to find out? If so, how? I am open to any and all legal suggestions.
If this doesn't make sense, I apologize. It's the easiest way I could think of explaining this.
