I had mentioned a GNOME applet available from Internode for keeping tabs on your Internet usage, well this has recently been updated to now work with Python 2.6 … Below is the instructions for installing.
Firstly, make sure you have the following installed:
– Python (>= 2.3)
– GNOME 2
– Any additional gnome-python-extras or python-gnome-extras
packages for your system.
Extract the archive and run the following as root:
# python setup.py install
# killall gnome-panel
You should now be able to right-click on your GNOME panel, choose
'Add to Panel' and select the Internode Usage Meter Applet.
Good luck and enjoy!

NOTE: as of the time of writing version 1.6.1 does not report usage with Internode easy plan.
