Unexplained data usage

Hi, I've got an unlimited data plan on the NBN 100/40 and I've just logged in to see that my data usage for the past month is over 350gb. Yet when I check the modem (which has been online for 13 days), the usage only states 2.5GB. So yeah, I think the website is broken Telstra. Or can someone explain this? Cheers, Craig.

Re: Unexplained data usage

The Technicolor and Sagemcom modem's usage meters get reset every time modem is rebooted. I not sure if the same occurs on the Arcadyan modem. Has the modem been rebooted recently?

Hi there,


Its the Arcaydan modem and was rebooted 13 days ago.


2.5GB seems too low, and 350gb seems way too high.
