Something very strange is going on with the mobile hotspot network that I use to connect my laptop to the 'net.
My phone claims that, over the past week, my mobile hotspot network used well over 5 GB of data.
This is despite the fact that:
- I didn't watch any videos (not even a short clip) via mobile hotspot during this time, and didn't stream more than a few minutes of audio
- I have Java turned off for most web pages on my browser
- The SSID of my mobile hotspot network is private and PW protected, so others can't easily siphon my data
Pretty much all I did using my mobile hotspot during this time was text-based (occasionally image-based) web research.
Am I missing something, or is it fair to conclude that there's some type of bug (or other flaw) in the ”meter” that's counting up my data usage?
