Broadband is very famous in India and we all prefer a dial-up connection at home. Since the latest plans of broadband are for unlimited usage and we don’t care about data and we do turn off the internet on our devices. Most of the company is offering a FUP (Fair Usage Policy), due to which we have to suffer low internet speed, after a fixed amount of usage. In order to extend that high-speed data period, all have to use it judiciously. InternetOff for Windows PC, help us to turn off Internet connection in a single click from the system tray, and thereby extend your data usage.
My Opinion about InternetOff
InternetOff is a freeware for Windows that lets you toggle or turn off the internet connection on your computer with just a click. One can off the internet through various ways, like switching of ADSL router, or manually going into connections and disabling wireless adapter or disconnecting a connection. But if you want a few extra features, then you must install InternetOff. You can install InternetOff to save data if you are not on an unlimited data plan.
Once installed, InternetOff runs in the background as a service and ensures the state of internet connection, as decided by you. You can disable the internet by simply hitting the small globe icon and then hitting the ‘Turn Off’ button and that is all.
While turning on the connection, you are offered five options namely:
- Turn on for 5 min
- Turn on for 15 min
- Turn on for 30 min
- Turn for an hour
- Just turn on
Once appropriate option selected by you, the time remaining to disable internet connection would be displayed in a small label which can be moved around as per ease.
You can also disable the “Internet Left Time” box from the Settings and tweak a few other options. If you don’t want that someone else should enable the connection, then you can prevent it by setting a password. However, there is a workaround as anyone who really needs the access to the internet could break the security by killing the InternetOff service from task manager and then manually enabling the internet adapter.
Overall, the InternetOff is a simple and specific tool that solves the purpose of fast enabling and disabling internet connection. It is only 2 MB in size but is free to download and offers a few extra features.
The InternetOff is compatible with Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8 / 8.1, however, in our test, it is working fine in Windows 10 too. You can use it in both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows PC. You can download InternetOff from here.
