In particular, the interface software doesn't provide any straightforward way to see your total data transfer to date. This can lead to nasty surprises if you're using a pay-as-you-go plan.</p> <p>This executable scans /var/log/ppp.log and totals up your data transfers over your dongle. It can optionally take a date as a command-line argument, in which case it only totals up usage after the given date.</p>
