Re: 15 GB/mo with new Windows 8 laptop

Somethings not right.. Even with 1 gigabyte per second speeds what it sounds like shes doing shouldn't burn that much data that quickly.. Sounds like something on the computer is "helping her out"

I'm guessing malware of some sort

I'm guessing this too. If it was a new laptop there were probably plenty of updates to download. See if the usage levels off next month to a smaller number.

WoW does not use that much data, and I doubt "a little old lady" is playing it.

I agree with the "updates" sucking it down. Have her (or you) check her account on the Verizonwireless.com site daily to see whats going on.
