So today I got an alert from my cable provider saying we’ve almost hit our bandwidth limit. I didn’t even know we had a limit. We do and it’s a terabyte a month. We’ve never come close before.
Here is a chart:
So in May my son came home from college with his PC and laptop. I asked if he has been doing any big downloads, etc, but we calculated the games he’s downloaded and while it seems like a lot (100GB in the last few days), it’s not anywhere near a terabyte.
So maybe someone a little more Internet savvy can tell me what can use a terabyte a month in bandwidth? To me, it seems like something nefarious, like someone is using one of the PCs in the house for bittorrent seed or something? I have no idea.
- How can I check?
- Is there something I can download to show me which of the computers in the house is the guilty PC?
- I have Win 10 PCs, an iMac, and a few laptops. Is this the sort of thing where I have to scan each of them to see if they are clear?
I’d appreciate your thoughts on how to proceed.
