Broadband Usage counter

Hi  I have been a P/net BB user for about a fortnight (from Madasafish) and note that 15% of my total usage (255mb) has been due to Gaming .
But I have never 'gamed' .....So can someone please suggest how this has happened ? What other activities could be classified as  gaming ?
Thanks .. Huh

You may have been on a different contract at different rates but Plusnet and Madasafish are one and the same entity.

VMBU is not 100% accurate. It will sometimes guess based on port number and other criteria what the traffic is for and can get it wrong sometimes. Given the amount I would not worry about it.

Re: Broadband Usage counter

Thanks,  Im not worried, cos as you say,its only a small percentage.    But if it can get that wrong, I just wondered what other categories were classed as gaming.
I have only used email, and the web for searches.  Nothing 'naughty' or adult !
