Excessive data usage?

  • Problem
  • Updated 3 years ago
For the last 4 months my data usage has been used before the end of my billing date.  I have turned the computer off, turned the uplink off, and used it during the "free" time only to see thwe data eaten away before the end of the month. It has not slowed down and they have me in a pickle jar because no other service is in my area that is close to this, yet.

Hello Leon,

This seem to be an ongoing problem for you.

You had posted of this before and you did receive some responses but you never responded in any manner.

Our monthly allotment lasts 10 days, last month I bought 6 more gigs and it was consumed as fast as I could pay for it, something is strange!

Yes some things have changed. Among them:

Windows Update

Windows Update delivery method now as a "roll-up"

Increased "telemetry"

Potential "telemetry" due to latest Nvidia graphics driver.

Potential for security issues on certain model Netgear routers.
