Want to see your internet speed? This is the best free ware software available today for monitoring network speed. It is also the best alternative of the popular internet speed monitor software DU Meter. I am using DU Meter since buying this Optimus (the name of my computer, do you have a name of your PC?

You can really keep an eye over the internet speed.

How to Install Net Speed Monitor on Windows 8
[UPDATE] Ignore the review saying this does not work on Windows 8, it does, all you have to do is Right-Click, go to Properties, press the Compatibility tab, tick the check box and select an older OS in the drop down (or “Previous Version of Windows”) this worked for me at least, no problems what so ever with the software… hope this helps 🙂
- Installer needs to be updated to work on Windows 8 without compatibility mode
