Almost 13 gigs lost in six hours?

Hello all,

Newish Hughes net user since the beginning of May. I constantly monitor my data usage as I m a little OCD about it. All my devices are set to manual updates only and are usually disconnected from the router while not in use.

Yesterday at about noon I checked my data and it showed 15.3gb remaining. I watched one episode on Netflix (set to low quality) and played an hour of a non online Xbox game. I left for work at 2pm. Came home at 11pm and watched one episode. I wake up his morning to my meter showing only 2.4gb remaining?! My meter shows heavy download usage (up to 3.9 gigs) during the time of 12pm all the way to 6pm, peaking at 3pm. Is the tool accurate or just a generic bell curve regardless? It should be noted that the line graph shows the one evening episode at under .3gb.

The ONLY devices connected to the router during this time was my xbox one and an iPad. The iPad shows no download history or updates since last week and the Xbox one didn't do any system updates since the middle of April. The Xbox was also turned off during this time.

I've spent the last few hours digging through both the Xbox and iPad with no luck. Is there something I might be missing or is it even not on my end? 13 gigs is a lot of data to just seemingly disappear.

My neighbors also just got Excede with 150gb limit for $10.00 less month than I pay. If this keeps happening I'll just have to eat the cancellation fee.
