I have also experienced much higher rates of usage and am only in my second month of GEN5. I am not PC savvy so my simple calculation is % days passed (or remaining) divided by full period compaired to usage passed (or remaining)divided by Total usage allocation. My usage with Gen 4 over many years never exceeded the 10 gig allocation and in most cases was substantially less.This must have included many internet changes as well as the upgrade to WIN10 last year. In this, my second month I have used almost 10gig to this date. No changes in myhabits, no Virus program (use defender), no streaming and Hughes Router. One interesting event, during my first month I noticed that my usage after a few days reset to "0" . This happened on several occasions. Since there is no free lunch, I wondered if this was to discourage my cancelling during the initial 30 day period. If usage under Gen 5 was to be that much greater it should have been "up front" info in the initial sales presentation.
