app you can download that keeps perfect track of your data. it updates every 15 mins and you can click on refresh to update sooner plus it has a history that you can view where your data has been used and at what time. Exede should have offered this app somebody posted it on here.

That would be Satellite Restriction Tracker by Reality Ripple: http://realityripple.com/Software/Applications/Satellite-Restriction-Tracker/


Another one that many use for more detailed information is Glasswire: https://www.glasswire.com/

Barry, you mentioned that this is an APP. Are you talking about that app I mentioned a few times here called Data Usage Pro? If so, yes it is a great app and you can also set limits on each device for both wifi and cellular data.

Satellite Restriction Tracker is an invaluable tool that everyone with metered satellite internet should have. I agree. Why Viasat doesn't buy the product and provide it as a tool for customers is beyond me.

Hey Barry,

Because the apps listed in the response above are third-party, we cannot endorse them.  

If they offer utility  to you, and fill that eSVT-shaped hole, give it a shot, as suggested above.

We cannot promise that the app will agree with our data usage info, however.

I have tried many,many things and none of them agree with yalls data for a reason. not even the built in data trackers on some routers and that come with most laptops.

however not even the modem agrees with the inflated numbers even with the Ethernet cable unplugged from the back of the modem those numbers increase until the data is gone, it might take 3hours or it might take it 3 weeks but one thing is for sure it will disappear even with that cable off:) yall have confirmed that to so many people already in recorded conversations. yes it shows unplugged and data still being used.

I have even tested this by putting in a "Dummy" Ethernet cable which go's into the back as any other one but the cord is cut off after a few inches of wire with no other end on it.

Barry, Bev...

I've downloaded and installed the Mac OSX version of SRT. It seems to be working - however, what utility am I gaining from it other than what I already get from checking my usage on exede.net? Isn't it just reading what Exede has and reporting that back to me? In that case, I don't see it as another point of reference, but rather just another view of the same point of reference I'm already getting from the exede.net site.

Probably, I am missing something... can one of you please explain the benefits of SRT?

(Note that I've just installed it, so I don't even have a view of history yet. Perhaps once I have some history, I will have a better idea of the benefits of SRT).

Thanks!

You are correct, it is pulling data usage from the Exede site.


If you want to manually go to that site and check your usage, have at it. I would rather a program that does it automatically for me every 15 minutes and give me usage history myself.
