Hi guys just been maxed out on my internet plan seems I used up 15gig in three days for about 6 hours of game play is this normal or is there some other reason.
I haven't seen any detail of this anywhere, or even if it's been thought or talked about.

someone stolen your connection or being using netflix too much.

However, i do believe FFXIV come close of pulling @least 200 kbps because my speedtest always show i drop half whenever i use FFXIV.

Glad i am on unlimited bandwidth, me and my 1 TB bandwidth usage per month.

As a house hold there is probably over a 1tb of data coming in a week and maybe a 1/8th of that going out. Thank god I don't have to pay for limited data rates. **** I just finished downloading a good 35gig a few mins ago...

As far as FFXIV goes, your not going to run up 15gig in usage in just 6 hours. If you have wifi setup you my want to make sure it's a secured network. It's that or someone else in your home is burning up your limit, whatever that may be.

my pc does two things at the moment and two things only.. that is play ffxiv and play fallout new vegas

in the past month not counting windows media transfers of content between pc's in my house and running peerblock ipfilter and other firewall and proxy services my ffxiv pc has used less then 1gb of "internets" and i think most or at least half of that is from updates.. from initial installation to the most recent that didnt do anything afaik

i know your pain of limited "internets" so i monitor everyone's usage and cut them off when i know there torrenting ect

i aint letting no one in my house use 2000 KBPS DL and 200 KBPS UL when i have to pay the bill lol

Ta thanks for that I've been looking through my usage and can't pin point any that uses so much, but I do leave my pc on all the time, might be a good thing to turn it off when not being used, I live in the country Australia and our internet is limited alot i.e. 50G at max of 8Mb/s ( read that as 2.4Mb/s best I've seen) before slow down to 64Kb/s till end of month and still have 20 days to go.

thanks again

DO MORE THEN TURN OFF PC. If your not in complete control then unplug router so theres 0 internet when your not home or asleep

The only reason I can think of for that is other ppl are using your wireless, I have never seen any program that will download that much in the background so thats out.

FFXIV from my guess doesnt use much more internet than FFXI.

And I cant see what turning your PC would help appart from sceduled downloads.

As I say the only problem I can think of is unsecured or inadequatly secured wireless so I would get WPA2 setup, unsecured wireless or WEP is like having a huge neon sign saying "COME ONE, COME ALL FREE INTERNET FOR ALL NO CATCH COME GET YOUR FREE INTERNET".

Also you may wanna change the password on the access point if you have the default password still and setting the MAC filter wouldnt hurt either.

Maybe run a virus and spyware scan as well because they could use alot of internet.
