The tbbMeter said on 9th July I had used approximately 43% (4.3 GB) of my monthly download allowance of 10GB and on 10th July when I put the computer on it said it was now 168% (16.8 and odds GB) and at the time of sending this it is supposedly now 472% (47.2 GB). That I in doing nothing too different from what I normally do online have used nearly 43 GB in 3 days! or 14.333GB per day (And rising.) Talk about trying to give someone a heart attack!
I suspected there was something up and asked BT for an estimate of what I had according to them used so far in July and it is put at approximately 3.44GB .
So what is going on? I have used the tbbMeter since March 2012 and the estimates between it's and BT's estimate of my broadband usage have usually not been out by more than 1.7 GB. My wireless network is I am satisfied secure and if BT is satisfied that the Broadband use for July has not been more than in usual months then as they are paid for the usage I am not going to argue with that.
Except I installed the tbbMeter to keep me generally right as to what my actual broadband use at any time approximately is.
