Recently, I have discovered that my data usage has been excessive. Consistently, I have been using about 10-15 GB per day and about 300 GB per month. Now, as of mid-February, I am using 50-100+ GB per day and I am currently at 1.3 TB used.
I've worked in a data center and the IT industry for many years and performed the following:
-Reset my WIFI password to another cryptic and long password
-Enabled traffic monitor on my router. To elaborate, my router indicated I've used about 5.7 GB of data and Cox says I used 50 GB.
-Verified all attached devices to my router and mines and firmware upgraded.
-Executed nmap from external to my home IP and verified I don't have any dangling open ports.
-Reset my router MAC and reset my modem to pick up a new IP.
-Exchanged my Cox modem for a new modem.
Any ideas? My apps and devices are all monitored and everything is normal. 6 GB daily usage vs 50 GB and 300 GB monthly trend to 1.3+ TB?
If this is the case and usage is doubling every two years, then what happens when going over 1TB becomes the norm. Is everyone going to have to keep upgrading their data usage cap?
