I am unemployed & thought it might be an easy unobtrusive way to earn a few pounds. Easy maybe but unobtrusive? No! Why? Well I noticed straight away that my broadband speed had slowed considerable. I have checked my speed before many times and consistently obtain 30mb down & 3mb up load speeds. I checked with nurago installed had no other pages load/open other than the speed checker site & my speed was 1.8mb down & 1.9mb up load! I instantly uninstalled the nurago software & my usual speeds were back, (phew!). So Do a before & after speed check & see, if it's not too bad fair enough but for me the extreme amount of speed loss was way to high to even think about leaving the software on, especially as it's only about £5 a month in your pocket after the 1st month of their monitoring. They'd have to pay an amount so high that I could live off it & so enable me to have a second broadband provider to enable me to surf whilst leaving theirs doodling away...
