Would someone please explain how it’s possible for 2 people in a home to use up 100 GB of data in 2 days? My data reset and was used up within 2 days. I mean, that’s equal to 5000 hrs of browsing or 100 SD movie downloads. Now I’m stuck with 0.15 Mbps speeds for another month!

Several years ago I felt the same as you do now. My solution was to buy a new router that measured data and Glassware software that also measures data.
I concluded that Viasat was charging me the correct amount of data.
The new router and Glassware showed me where all my hidden data was coming from.
I used these tools to take corrective action and I have never gone over my data limit since then. My data limit is only 12Gb per month and this is enough for me when managed correctly.
