Extreme Data Usage
For the past few years, I averaged 300 GB per month until now. In December, I used 1,400 GB and in January it will exceed 1800 GB. I changed out my 5 year old purchased modem/router to the Cox equipment. In monitoring my usage, there are normal days that average 15GB/day and extreme days that average 185GB. The most has been 300 GB. The usage will be 280GB one day, then 5GB, then 250GB, then 6GB. It seems to be one extreme or another. It's my wife and I and we stream 3-4 hours/day on Netflix, have a couple of PC's and our iPhones. I have paused certain devices and it doesn't seem to be a specific device.
To remedy the situation, Cox suggested I get the unlimited data plan (big surprise). I am at a total loss.
