Usage meter refills to zero used each day

My usage **bleep** refills to the full 20 GB at the end of each day so I have no idea what my total usage is for the cycle see attached graph. The summary report says 0% used 20 Gigabytes available after 15 days into the cycle. I do not see a button to allow me to upload the screenshot in the community.

First, have you searched the site or read your welcome email?

There are numerous reports of people complaining about this, only to be told that this is normal for the first 20 days in order to ensure the system is working properly. And, as alluded, it was in your welcome email.


Second, this particular forum named "General Discussion" is also marked explicitly "NOT FOR TECHNICAL SUPPORT". The appropriate forum for this discussion would be named "Tech Support".

Seeing a trend here.

For the first 20 days of your service, Hughesnet sets your data to constantly refill. This is done as a courtesy, to allow new users to get their systems up to date, if needed, so they're not using data.  Your system will go to normal after 20 days.
