Many people have bandwidth limits with their ISPs, and with the amount of tempting content on the web these days, it can be hard to stick within these limits. Enter this week’s sponsor — Rubbernet — a new app from Conceited Software which tracks what apps are accessing your network connection, and how much bandwidth they are using.

Not only is this useful for monitoring bandwidth usage, but it can be used to detect any software which might be secretly sending out personal data of yours. Rubbernet is a remarkably useful application, and sports a very pretty interface.

If you have a cap on your bandwidth – or regularly use mobile internet/tethering – this is a fantastic way to keep an eye on what’s going on. I’d definitely recommend giving it a try, and downloading the free trial that’s available from the Rubbernet website.

If you’re already a fan, let us know in the comments!

I’m excited to let you know that we’ve chosen the five Rubbernet winners, and they are:

  1. Robin Lundgren

Thanks to everyone who took part, and we’ll be sending your license codes through shortly!

Old Competition Post

Today’s competition is for an application we recently reviewed, called Rubbernet. This is a new piece of software from Conceited Software which tracks what apps are accessing your network connection, and how much bandwidth they are using.

Not only is this useful for monitoring bandwidth usage, but it can be used to detect any software which might be secretly sending out personal data of yours!

Entering the competition is really easy. All you need to do is:

  1. Post a link to this competition – either on your website, or via Twitter
  2. Leave a comment, letting me know where you posted the link!

Best of luck, and I’ll be picking the winners in just over a week. The competition closes on Friday 27th May, but you can head over to the Conceited Software site to download a trial in the meantime!

Many people have bandwidth limits with their ISPs, and with the amount of tempting content on the web these days, it can be hard to stick within these limits. Software such as SurplusMeter is great for tracking your bandwidth usage, but there’s no way of seeing what is using up your bandwidth.

Enter Rubbernet, a new app from Conceited Software which tracks what apps are accessing your network connection, and how much bandwidth they are using. If some third-party software is accessing your network without your permission, you can find out and try to stop it.

Not only is this useful for monitoring bandwidth usage, but it can be used to detect any software which might be secretly sending out personal data of yours. A great concept for an app, but does it work in practice? Let’s take a look.
