Technician Visit

  • Problem
  • Updated 3 years ago
We had an earthquake here in Napa in August.  At the end of August a technician comes out to adjust our satellite dish. Since the technician has come out, we use almost all of our 10 gigs in a week or so.  It used to last the entire month.  We do not download or stream movies, we do not have Netflix.  I have complained and they keep giving me some extra gigs during the gig giveaway but I want to figure this out before that promotion stops.  I have checked and our tv is not connected to the router.  I changed the password to ensure no one could have hi-jacked us.  Does anyone have any advice on what else to check?  Thank you.
