There are many reasons for you to need to restrict Internet access allowed for your programs. For instance, a few download managers employ the whole bandwidth while you are downloading, which prevents you from browsing the Internet in the mean time.

With NetLimiter, you can efficiently limit the available bandwidth for running programs. The interface of this utility is very well-designed, which is why there is barely any adaptation time before mastering its key features. Limiting the network usage of a program is as easy as clicking on a checkbox.

Yet, easy-to-use does not mean that this piece of software is incomplete. In fact, it is quite the opposite, you can customize everything to your liking. For example, you can decide which elements should be displayed in the interface, as well as the units that should be used for the numeral information.

Monitoring your network usage is also a child's play. NetLimiter displays useful live information, and it can even output graphs so that you can directly see which applications are bandwidth-hungry.

To sum it all up, NetLimiter is one of the best, if not the best, bandwidth control piece of software that I have tested so far. If you are not convinced, you can try it for free since a trial version is available.
