Probably because you do not have a good 3rd party wireless router that has good traffic management tools. It is the best investment I have every made when it comes to monitoring and managing my data usage.

Ken, another option is to try Glasswire which runs on Windows and Android.  There is a free version at https://www.glasswire.com/.  For the device that it is installed on, it will give you a breakdown of which apps are using how much data.  It will also show you what you are connecting to and at what speed.

Asus routers that specifically list the Traffic Analyzer feature (not simply the Traffic Monitor feature) if looking for an out-of-the-box experience - most of these are higher-end routers that include the Asus RT-AC1900 series and up (as besty I can determine).

However, lower-end models can also gain the Traffic Analyzer feature if willing to use the customized third party Asuswrt-Merlin firmware. Suppirted models are listed at:

I personally use the Asus RT-AC3200 (a little bit of overkill but was on sale at Amazon when I picked it up and has some other features I find useful)

I will agree with all the suggestions above. At this time we do not offer data monitoring tools like what you'd like to see, in fact even the tool I can use won't break it down that specifically (we just get general categories via a pie chart) there's a lot of concern about privacy and whatnot so that's why we don't have it on our end but the 3rd party options suggested above will likely give you what you're looking for.
