more information is required if you want us to speculate on what could be causing the 20 Gbyte usage on your account:
1. what kind of home network do you have, and what do you have connected to it;
2. do you have WiFi enabled;
3. how many people in your household have access to your network and networked equipement;
That being said, there is precious little you can do to challenge Rogers usage assessment. Rogers does not, to the best of my knowledge, publish anywhere how they arrive at "usage"!
Usage is technically a complicated matter with financial consequences for you and me. And for Rogers. When we get our utility bills for gas and electricity, we know what it is for which we are paying. And we know that the usage meters in each case are tested and certified. When we purchase gasoline, we know that government has inspected the pump for correct and accurate measurement. What is done to certify an ISP's usage measurement?
Currently have 100GB, express 25/2 pack via a retention deal with other rogers services (cable, homefone). Noticed since having this internet pack the usage per day has been rising more than normal. Did nothing out of ordinary in regards to new or open apps, streaming services, or anything... internet usage behavior is the same. I'm wondering if rogers is increasing the usage per day on purpose to make peeps go over 100GB. Prior express pack 80, 25/2 I rarely ever gone over 60GB a month... My most recent usage details on the 100GB, 25/2 express pack is like over 80GB for the month. What the heck is going on??
Like I said, I've done nothing different so your post is irrelevant. All my apps, task mgr, et al is all the same.
Try again... *side eye*
I'm getting crazy bandwidth usage numbers for the last 2 weeks - according to Roges I used over 70 gigs yesterday! I'd believe 7 gigs.... Switching to unlimited, I don't have the time or energy to fight them
My internet usage has been spiking lately and I am over my 100gb allowance as a result. Jan 5 or 6, I never even had the tv on and only checked email on one day. I have changed the password jan 5 but its still spiking jan 6.
Any suggestions? Meanwhile Im getting billed for all this usage. In dec I only used 62gb in the whole month which is more normal. Any suggestions as to what can cause this?
