Internet Data Usage
Recently, over the last two billing periods, my family has went over our internet data limit, which is something that has never happened before and I was hoping wouldn't happen again. However, our usage is getting dangerously close to the limit again this period, so I decided to monitor it this time, so I waited a little past midnight to check the usage on myAT&T for the new day and just an hour past midnight, there was 11GB already downloaded. I don't even know how something like that is even possible or how AT&T actually calculates the data usage for their Billing & Usage page each day, but something isn't right. I know every device that is connected to the WiFi, and I know our family uses a lot of internet, but I even I don't think we're capable of using 11GB within an hour past midnight. So, I plan on turning off our router slightly before midnight and checking each device by adding them on individually to absolutely make sure it isn't us. I know for a fact, it's not any of our phones, laptops, or tablet that's causing this problem, but there's a Roku and chromecast I haven't accounted for, so I guess we'll see. If anyone else has any other advice or solutions, it'd be very much appreciated.
