Since going over to VSDL on the 20th our data usage has skyrocketed. 10 GB in 2 days says Orcon. But in no way
can be reconcile that with what we feel we've used.

I've always thought Orcon was a pretty good ISP and would hate to suggest they're wrong.... but it seems like they're
charging us about twice as much as we use.

Has anyone else noticed this ?

And, more importantly, is there any software available where we can monitor our usage at home, and compare to the Orcon count?

Best way to check if its a machine on your network causing the traffic is this - unplug the router from the power for a few hours. Then plug it back in and check the Orcon usage logs for that period. If theres data showing, then something funny going on, either with your line or Orcons logging. (I think there is a slight delay with it showing)

If theres no data showing, then its def something on your system/s causing the data use.
