high usage rate

In the first one and one-half day I used 29% of my total monthly plan (12 GB) or 3.5 GB. I estimate I was on the system for about 6 or 7 hours and most of that was watching videos....a few were high def. So.....is this what I should expect going forward if I do the same or is something else going on with a new installation? Thanks

That sounds about right.  Watching videos will use a lot of data.You should expect to use that much data if you continue doing that.

Yes Steve, videos use a lot of data. 480 resolution uses about 0.25 GB per hour, 720 about 0.66 GB per hour, 1080 about 1 GB per hour, 4K 5-7 GB per hour. so 5.6 GB in 6-7 hours of mostly watching videos is about right.
