When you purchase Tokens they don't show up on the "meter" in the usual sense.
You have THREE data "buckets" from which to draw data from depending upon time and conditions.
#1: Anytime Bytes (usually used between 8am and 2am local)
#2: Bonus Bytes ( read as "latenight bytes" used between 2 am and 8am local)
#3: Token Bytes:
Token Bytes are blocks of data you can buy and then are "used" to transfer them from the purchase page to the "Available Token Bytes" data bucket.
Token data does not show up on your regular meter but instead has its own category.
This prevents purchased token data from being lost when you either get your monthly refill of move to the late night (2am to 8am ) time period.

On a data capped service you have to watch your rate of usage.
There are three different meters from which to chose depending on you desired accuracy at the time:
#1: There is the modems SCC (System Control Center) found by entering 192.168.0.1 into your browser:
#2: There is another meter available as a download that can be found on the your Hughes "dashboard" called the Download Status Meter:
#3: The most accurate of the meters, the "at a glance" meter is also found after login to your dashboard and reads down to the single MB usage level:
These are the "tools" that you have to track active usage. Additionally there are "History" displays but as such are after the fact.
