Sudden spike in data overage unexplained

I've had Hughesnet since July 2015 and average between 100-200 mbs per day, well under the 10,000 mbs per month that I pay for. So I was dismayed to discover that only 2 weeks into a new billing cycle, my data was all used up! I had to fork over $32 to get enough to limp through the next two weeks. I checked my usage history and see that in one day last week the entire month allotment was used!!!  Only the hubs and I use internet, we have one iMac computer, 2 iphones, never stream video or audio. I am stumped. Nothing downloads automatically. I tried chatting with a Hughesnet rep yesterday but the connection was sooooo sloooowwww (imagine that) and English wasn't her primary language. I gave up after an hour. Help! How can determine what ate my usage?
