Mobile Broadband Usage

Answered

My mobile usage has gone from approx 250mb per day to over 600mb per for no apparent reason.I was foolish & downloaded a movie from Chilli torrents in December & it seems that since then things have gone crazy.I am not computer literate & am having trouble trying to find out if something is running without my knowledge.The data usage on the computer is showing constant usage even though I do not think I am using anything.Any help in basic laymans language would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Mobile Broadband Usage

If you've downloaded a file on a torrent, it's a P2P network. The way it works is it downloads and uploads data. So you may need to check your torrent program to see if there is data being sent out.

My usage went haywire too. I change the password on my wifi and it has settled down, could be a co-incident. Worth a try.
