[Internet] Usage Monitor Accuracy (2013)
Can anyone comment on the current accuracy of the usage monitor?
I know back in 2011 it was shut down because of its inaccuracy but how is it now? For me, it definitely seems to be much higher than my router reports.
I even tested it by taking out my username and password and replacing it with test@test. No browsing was possible but there was still 100MB of usage. Wireless is also off and nothing else was connected.
It's pretty bad in this day and age when we gotta start worrying about 100mb's of usage.

I usually see about a 5 to 10GB difference between Bell's meter and my router's meter.
It doesn't happen every month though.
It seems random.

Yeah 100MB in a day is a bit much though especially when it should be 0 and can't possibly be anything else since its disconnected. With actual use, I see quite a bit of difference. 10-20% on average I'd say, maybe more.
My philosophy is if your concerning yourself with having to monitor your usage its time to get the you know what off bell.
