Hi- I was just wondering, when you get your internet bill, does it
list the sites you have been to?

TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Hello half-geek; nice to have you as a
new reader here. Unless you have a 'measured account' type of service,
which as far as I know is very rare, your monthly bill will just show
the total due. If you specifically ask your ISP, and have a good
reason for doing so, the ISP will probably have logs which show the
IP numbers, (network addresses) of those sites, but it is sort of hard
for 'regular users' to see those logs or understand them. Usually your
monthly bill will just either say 'unlimited monthly use X dollars per
month' or it may say 'X number of hours used, Y over your allotment,
and balance due, etc'. I hope this answers your question. Want to
ask more questions? Feel free to join us in conversations here. PAT]
