Re: Never understood this

This is my exact thought also, I used 75GB last month. Of that 75GB, a vast majority of that was likely SamKnows doing speed tests every hour.

I honestly stream very little video because I DVR everything. Obviously this would be different if I did not have cable, but even then I still would not use that much data.

Sure, there are legitimate ways to use large amounts of data, but with the exception of video streaming most people do not do them (FTP or offsite backups).

In a couple of weeks I'm moving into a Centurylink area with 1.5Mbps DSL, I can guarantee you my internet usage will decrease even more (I'm going to miss 16/3 Charter).
