I have been comparing the data use in my home every night . I am testing it to find out why my usage it so high.
i have noticed that it go's up .2 GB every day and i never used the internet that day. is it possible that's it's the router that is causing this .2 GB increase? also the data meter from windows is reporting me at a 2.89 GB at this time and when i checked the viasat side is showed i was at 3.0 GB. how ? is that

If you are leaving your Windows running in the background, that’s probably your data culprit.

Automatic updates can eat lots of data, even on crap you don't use anymore.

A 100Mb discrepancy between the two traffic monitors is also very small.
