How can my system be completely unplugged from the dish and the electrical outlet, for more then a month and our download data still rises? Does anyone else have this problem? I'm thinking Wildblue is behind this to slow down everybody's service to gain more custermers! Or make more money! I want WildBlue explain this to all of us!

How did you check your data usage?  If you used your satellite system to check your data usage there could be latent data usage that is reported when you reconnect.  Also, you could also have an update hungry computer.  I turned on a little used laptop that burned through 2GB in about an hour.
