Do you really think its the video ads causing you to go over 150GB.. Really?? Come On!!
Yes comcast still provides access to the meter
Now in my area atleast there is this note
Note:enforcement of the 250GB data consumption threshold is currently suspended
Oct was I would of gone over your 150GB limit, but I also uploaded over 56GB of video to my owncloud setup on my webhost for backup.. Or I would of be no where close to it.
I you are going over 150GB, your streaming something all the time.. Be it video, be it music, or you torrenting, etc.
So last night we watched 2 movies over netflix, and also got a large file into my dropbox from a share.
here is the netflix moving watching
So yeah last night was fairly high usage.. I have multiple internet connected devices, 2 phones, ipad, kindle fire, dvrs, laptops, 4 vms running my desktop and as you can see normally don't do anywhere close to that sort of usage. If we did that clearly we would be over.. But look at the other days this month, on track to be way under even your 150GB limit.
So no its not video ads in your browsing causing you to go over
If you want to get a handle on it, then you need to find out what is using it. Phones and tables should be able to show you their usage. Your other computers put some software on them say http://www.netlimiter.com/
has a free monitor part that can tell you how much bandwidth and what is using it.
To be honest the only real thing that is going to use that kind of bandwidth is major torrenting, or your just seeding all month on something popular? Or you streaming quite often movies or have maybe spotify on in the background all day, pandora, etc. But before you go blocking the video in ads, and watching youtube in SD
Why don't you figure out what is using it.. For all you have some machines infected sending out spam all day? Or part of some botnet sending out ddos against their masters target, etc.
150GB a month is 5GB a day -- that is a SHITLOAD of cat videos from youtube in 1080P, I mean a shitload!!! So something else is going on.
