The Start Usage Meter updates periodically (or you can manually request an update) and displays detailed information about your data usage on your home or business internet connection. A summary of your usage is also available in your OS X menu bar at the top of your screen.

After initial setup, the usage meter works even when away from your connection. As always, the official usage page data reading should be taken as the accurate reading over this app.
