Usage Question.

Usage Question.

Since my switch to Fibre on Monday my usage pattern seems to of greatly increased. Looks like over 13 Gig since then, mostly during peak time. As my online habits haven't really changed since the switch I am wondering if my connection is being "hacked" by another line.
Also noticed it all nearly comes under the "other" category as well, what does that refer to?
Usage breakdown here.

Re: Usage Question.

The 'Other' category is where traffic that hasn't been identified as any of the above goes.
It could just be, for example, a new game that isn't being recognised as 'Gaming' that might fall into that category. We can't say, specifically, what traffic it is.
Do you use your connection wirelessly? I can help by providing an hourly/daily breakdown of your usage if that helps?

Re: Usage Question.

My main PC is connected by Ethernet cable. There are wireless devices but most are dormant & actually not doing much. Usage hasn't changed since the fibre switchover.
Yes, can you give me a hourly/daily usage breakdown if possible please.

Re: Usage Question.

Did anyone download any On Demand stuff from Sky (a HD programme there can be 2-3Gb)?

Re: Usage Question.

Linn,
has PlusNET recognised Ghosts as a game yet? I'm seeing loads of traffic whilst gaming as other. Not sure if this is Gaming or something else

Re: Usage Question.

Would you be able to grab us a Wireshark Capture so we can check for you?

I'll grab Dave when he is back at his desk to see if it's added on Procera.

Re: Usage Question.

We've been informed that Ghosts is correctly identified on our traffic management platform. What sort of issues are you seeing?
