Telstra 4G excessive downloads makes a lemon

I compared 4G data downloads between Optus and Telstra over several days. Typically I use around 4 GB/day with Optus, but with Telstra it's around 10 GB/day. Same network and same daily use over several weeks. All I do is change out the sim card in the modem. 

Optus charges $0.333/GB, Telstra charges $0.325/GB. But looking at the download volumes, Optus is a far better deal and Telstra is a lemon!

Anyone comment?
