Broadband usage - What is other?


[link to this post]
 
I had a look at our usage so far this month. It's currently 597GB. Looking at the breakdown there is a large bulk of this being used by other.

We do use a firestick but wouldnt that come under streaming?

It may be that the profiling system is not identifying some traffic, e.g. if a stream is over HTTP/HTTPS then it may be harder to tell it apart from other traffic.
