Many things can use data, even if you are not using a connected computer or other device. Automatic updates, background app refresh, cloud services.

If you don't use an ad and media blocker, like UBlock, every ad and video on webpages loads and, that can use a lot of data as well.

Of course On Demand TV, streaming or downloading music and videos also uses a lot of data.

If you would like a usage review, email your account and contact information along with your request to exedelistens@viasat.com and, they can give you a better idea of how your data was used.
