I have gone over my data usage cap the last 2 months. Previously my data usage was between 300-600 GB per month, well under the cap. I decided to keep track of the total input/output of data from my tp-link router. For the last 2 days the Cox usage meter says I used ~80GB, but my router says I have downloaded ~ 4GB. Does anyone sees have a discrepancy like this? Is there anything else that could giving a false report to Cox?

I have a theory that high number of uncorrectables on the modem could lead to the meter counting more data then the WAN uses. Does that fit your signal levels? I don't think it would have THAT much effect, but it could be a factor.
I've started monitoring mine as well, and Cox is always double what my router shows, but they are happy to quote

Which doesn't tell me anything other than they certified their meter 2 years ago for accuracy. Next time I get pulled over for speeding, maybe I can tell the cop, 10 miles ago my gps can verify I was not speeding, so his radar gun must be mistake.
