After years of monitoring my data usage and going over, I decided to make a dashboard (yes, like your car dashboard) for my ISP data usage.
I decided to publish this piece of code with the hopes that would help other people setting something up, where they could be notified via text message/SMS on their current data usage and predict what their usage will be by the end of the [billing] cycle.
Here is the repo -> https://github.com/blacknred0/mdup and the name of the project is “Mediacom Data Usage Prediction (mdup) via SMS”.

I found out couple of days ago that you could send text messages for free. YES FOR FREE!!! no need to open an account (unless you don’t have a email address). The only thing that you will need to do is to replace mobilenumber with the actual number that you are sending the text message to and then hit send.
