I have been on FTTC for just over a week, and my provider has an excellent bandwidth usage page that I can visit.
Before going to FTTC, My usage was always relatively small (3.4mbs connection). Now it is vastly higher. In part I have to admit this is me trying out a few new things.
The usage page shows traffic every ten minutes and there are lots of occasions when I know that there should have been very little traffic and there has been lots.
Today I have signed out of Skype and killed the process and the usage is minimal again.
Has anyone else noticed this behaviour? If my suspicion is right then it would use several GB of my peak time monthly usage allowance.
I probably ought to add I have used Skype for ages and think it is a great product.
