10 GB of monthly data plan seems to be a very small monthly allowance. But that is true, the same way I am subscribed to my internet provider. The only difference is that I am with a much higher data plan, thrice of your monthly volume. Volume-based data plan is normally offered on wireless internet service like 4G LTE and I’m sure you are subscribed to a similar one.

In a volume-based data plan, before you reach the end of your volume, your internet provider will send you a warning or a notice on your screen when you connect your computer to the internet. It happened to me once when my data usage reached I think about 75 percent of my 30 GB data plan.

When you reached a certain threshold on your data plan, you will be directed to a certain page by your internet provider the next time you connect your computer to the internet informing you of your current data usage and the remaining amount left.

The message will also tell you that when you reached the limit of your data usage, your internet connection will be cut off and will resume the first day of the following month. Since you are also on a volume-based internet data plan, you should install a bandwidth monitor like SoftPerfect NetWorx. It will help you monitor your data usage for your daily, weekly, and monthly bandwidth usage.

NetWorx supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10 including Windows Server 2003 until Windows Server 2016.
