How do I determine what caused my Data-use spike?
I am a 74 y/o retiree with reasonably high computer literacy. My computer use is not highly variable but out of the blue, I have been assessed with a spike in usage, and throttling.
I reacted immediately by initiating a 'booster' so as to continue my very necessary access to the internet, but I am still throttled back to unacceptable speeds. My medical conditions require swift contact with medical professionals and family.
I need to know just what caused the spike, so as to prevent it reoccurring; if indeed it was caused by me.
This did happen once before, but, as it was with only a day or two from the end of the billing period, I accepted it without question. This time it was in week one of a billing cycle, and that is mysterious.

Re: How do I determine what caused my Data-use spike?
The first thing I would do is change your WiFI password in your modem and then match that with any devices that use that WiFi.
You are intitles to 3 free top-ups per year with home broadband.
More information on how to do that is available at https://www.telstra.com.au/support/category/broadband/nbn/speeds-and-usage/understand-telstra-air-da...
Contacting support directly might help find why you useds the data.
Footnote: I dont work for Telstra, I just try to help out fellow Telstra customers.
