Holy cow! I have been going crazy the last few months trying to figure out where all my data is going? Hughes folks couldn't tell me anything. I had an iPhone6 and a iMac G4 and I was going through data like water. I useed my 50 GB usually in less than 9-10 days! I had started out with a 20 GB plan, but now that I am at 50 GB, there's nowhere else to go but slow! Very frustrating to say the least! In the last 2 months I have acquired a new phone (iPhoneX) and last weekend a new iMac Pro. My data reloads on the day my bill comes in and goes out (it goes by me with a whooshing noise!) which is the 14th of the month. By the morning of the 16th I had used up my 50 GB and the 50 GB bonus data! 100 GB in just over 24 hours? This is crazy - I don't watch movies or TV and I watch YouTube once in a blue moon, most of my browsing is done on my phone while I am out and about (I have a 5GB plan on my phone and I barely use 1 GB each month), I don't do any games, a normal amount of e-mail, but I do all of my shopping online. The majority of my work is offline. I have DIrecTV but I only watch a few hours a week, if that, and only the free channels like BBC America, Animal Planet, Discovery, etc. and no premium channels. And I now have this new, blazing fast computer that is basically serving as a bookend for the next three and a half weeks! NOw that's frustrating! Now here is where I was told my data is going... On DirecTV they have the app for Pandora, which I use, as well as the app on my iPnone and my computer. I also subscribe to Apple Music, and I have had that for 4-5 years and never an issue The majority of my music with Apple Music is already downloaded both on my phone and on my computer, and I keep trying to download my music on Pandora but it doesn't seem to work. If I am going to do a large music download, I usually use someone else's Wi-Fi, such as the grocery store. Once I finish my shopping, my downloads are done! So is my addiction to music the cause or partially the cause for my severe and unreasonable data usage? I am only one peron and I am requiring the data for a whole corporation! I had to stop buying tokens as it was getting too costly - I barely would buy them and before I finished that, I could hear them whooshing by me also! I cannot seem to be able to hang onto my data! Any suggestions would be greatlyu apprediated!
