    The only thing they neuter is their customers.

    Probably a bunch of Silverado ads.

    No browsing going on with the PS3's.

    I think your suggestion, (my inclination) to lock them down one at a time is the best bet. The biggest variable is me.

    I'm home for 6 weeks healing up from back surgery instead of at work, and I've been shopping online. While that wasn't the case last month with the big usage, me being home and occasionally surfing won't help with the root cause analysis.

    Well my last question, is your WIFI secure? Close neighbors? Change your password is my last thought.

    Yes, thats what I meant. Someone else said it right on here. "Verizon doesn't have customers, they have hostages".

    Another good idea, but no. We live at least a mile away from our closest neighbor.

    No chance. It's not the PS3s just sitting there on, and it's certainly not any amount of standby activity. Actual online gaming might rack up a few gigs a month.

    The real data use is going to be media and downloads. For web surfing and email, data use will be minimal, but at the same time 10 gigs isn't a ton of data if you watch movies online and other stuff like that.

    I pull dozens of gigs a month without thinking about it, between a desktop, Xbox, and tablet.

    Are you watching a lot of video at that level?

    I just totaled up yesterday's usage: 376.26 mb. That includes 3 online purchases, one download of the web browser "Firefox", and then general forum running from about 9:30 to 12:00. 99% of that through my Mac desktop.

    So my total for the last 2 days:

    12/6- 552.22 mb
    12/7- 376.26 mb
