In today’s digital age, the internet has become an integral part of our lives. From communication and entertainment to education and work, a reliable internet connection is essential.

Advantages of metering your WiFi:

  1. Data Efficiency: By metering your WiFi, you'll be able to save on data usage. There are apps that have automatic update or background download enable that will consume your data balance.
  2. Flexibility: You'll be able to pick and choose where and how your data is being consumed.
