Broadband usage checker - overdue

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

Come on BT, if you are going to put limits on your broadband, you need to let your customers monitor their own usage with a online BT broadband usage checker. Maybe even a widget etc that can constantly show on your desktop etc your usage.
In this day and age, with homes having so many LAN and Wi-Fi enabled devices, it is simply crazy that BT, can turn around and suggest to customers to download a free monitor. Which I have done (2 different ones), and that filters out internal network traffic - great! Both roughly produce same results. But by the end of the month it was 20Gig different to BT's total. So my other devices in the home are using ~20Gig alone. How can I monitor this properly without a online BT broadband usage checker??
Also why when phoning BT do I get a different story about FUP? Some say Im unlimited there is no limit, and I will never be capped. Some say I have a 100gig threshold, but not to worry as I will only be capped if I go over that in 2 consecutive months. All which I believe is not true.

Been mentioned so many times before and we always get left with "we'll forward this to the XXXXX team"
The homehub monitors usage up and down, I dont see why they dont just simply adapt the firmware so that it doesnt wipe when the connection is lost.
