    Home Cloud Solutions - Data Usage

Ever since I signed up with Home Cloud (almost 2 years ago) they've never offered a straightforward solution to verify how much data I have used and I have remaining for the month.

    Good day, I've been trying to figure out how to view DAILY usage for Telkom LTE data. I can see the current data left, but would like to be able to view how much data has been used on certain days. If anyone knows how to do this, or if it is even possible, that would be amazing.

    Vodacom Data Usage Monitor for Mac OS X

    I have built a useful app for myself that I'd like to share: It is a status bar app for OS X that monitors your mobile broadband usage (i.e. that of a 3G USB modem) on the Vodacom network (quite niche, I'd say, because it satisfies a very specific requirement). Many internet users are on...
