Yesterday I signed in at 9:12 and out at 10:52 and went from 1.9GB to 2.0GB. today I signed in at 8:54 and out at 9:59 and my usage went from 2.0 to 3.4. Explain the difference in usage to me.

The amount of time you are on-line has little to do with how much data you will use. It is rather the type of activities you are engaged in that determines how fast you will use your data. For example one hour of watching Hi Definition video will use more data than an hour a day of web browsing for a month. Here are more examples:

1 hr./day web browsing = 1.8 GB/month

10 emails/day = 0.003 GB/month

2 hrs./ week social media = 0.514 GB/month

15 photos/week = 0.193 GB/month

20 file downloads/week = 0.257 GB/month

1 hr./day streaming music = 1.2 GB

15 min./week video chat = 0.103 GB

2 hrs./month std def movies = 1.5 GB

2 hrs./month hi def movies = 4.6 GB

Your dealer or Exede Tech Support can look at your ESVT and tell you what type activities are eating your data.

Hope this helps.

i agree with this guys ^ he is right. but you also gotta make sure to disconnect devices from your wifi because therefore it can actually like download updates automatically and so on. so id suggest turning off devices when not in use :3
