Is there any mechanism or software through which I can monitor how much we are uploading and downloading? Our telecommunication company charges us on uploads and downloads and we'd like to verify their figures.
With an eye to meeting your requirements at the least cost, I would suggest that you consider ntop http://www.ntop.org/ as an effective open source alternative (and inexpensive too – all versions are free – something like $70 for Windows). Augmenting that with MRTG http://www.mrtg.org might also be useful depending on what equipment you have access to.
