Some change in my LNFZ?

My billing date is for the 4th.  On the 3rd I saw the meter at about 8 GB out of 10 used with 0 days left (typical). The next day after normal daily use I'm already up to about 1 GB.  This is w/o video or streaming use which I only do during my LNFZ time.  

Today (5th) I'm already up to 1.3 GB and have only checked my email and my data usage and gone to a couple forums.  At this rate I'll go over my limit REAL fast which I NEVER do!  

Anyone else notice a change this month?  I'm worried that my LNFZ got "changed" from my original 12-5am to something else without me knowing about it?

Thanks!

Hello Ken, 

We can certainly check to make sure your account is set to the correct time zone in regards to your LNFZ. Also be cautious of System Updates or Storage which can consume data you may not be aware of.  Please send us your account and contact info to exedelistens@viasat.com

Thanks Lindsey.  I did finally get the eSVT info to show the bars as to when the data was used.  Looks like the LNFZ is in the right place but think that browsing on Google maps in earth mode and/or Google earth really eats data from the graphics streaming!?  I'll test before bothering customer service. :)

Having developed and maintained geographic information systems (GIS) in the past, any high resolution imagery is extremely data intensive (particularly if you do a lot of zooming and panning). The global high imagery we were using was measured in upwards of 50 terabytes - satellite imagery at different zoom factors for the entire world and greater resolution for specific areas which I'm not at liberty to discuss ;)

Stick to standard road map views outside of the free zone (even then some caution is needed).
