I'm not sure what you mean by the old broadband being zero rated.
Plesse igmore amd axxept applogies in adbance fir anu typos
2. Our ISP is Spark
3. Our 3 boys are small and only allowed a device on a Sunday for a short time (mean but less arguments)
4. No big updates, no mail issues (not big emailers, not into social media)
5. Yes there are many variables but our habits have remained the same yet quadtrupled data usage
6. For us, all the faster speed meant was that we no longer get frustrated at our shows stalling, we didn't suddenly start watching tv 18 hours a day. It would honestly be impossible to use all that data the way we use it, slowest speed, less than 3 hours a day, 5 days a week. Wondering about a hijack and have put scanner app on, but maybe I'm just getting paranoid. Nearest neighbour is 500m away and sincerely doubt they would have the time or the energy, let along the wherewithall, to hack our wifi. We live rurally and there hasn't been any cars parked in the yard all day :P
Last night we watched tv for 90 minutes and used 400mb of data, so what gives, why the big totals? Yet to hear from Spark off their own bat so will ring this afternoon. Can't imagine getting very far.
Thanks for the input.

one or more of your devices could be consuming data without your knowledge, mail sync issues are just one suggestion. try turning some devices off and see what's happening to your consumption.

I think you mean 400MB of data, that's about 600kb/s streaming, sounds pretty typical looking at the footnote on this TVNZ ondemand calculator. (Megabytes to kilobits, minutes to seconds, bits vs bytes)
