On your wired internet service provider?

If you don't keep track just say.

I have unlimited broadband so I never check regularly but I think I checked a couple of years ago and I’m somewhere between 500-700GB per month.

I don't track it since my DSL service doesn't have data caps any more. It's way more than it used to be since the rated speed finally got bumped to 12Mbps. Streaming video at standard quality became an option at that point, even with an iPhone and an iPad Pro connected thru WiFi using a little bandwidth now and then for assorted notifications.

I would say anywhere between 5-30GB/day. A typical day would be guessing at about 10GB. As with all things depends on the day… depends on the update.

I have no data cap and I have no way of knowing.

This article claims that the average family back in 2017 streamed 190 gigs / month.

I stream everything at home so I imagine it's a large number.

With the amount of data that is streamed today, I'm surprised that anyone can operate with a data cap.

Same about the cap. I honestly don't know if there is a way to find out without figuring out how to get usage for each device for a time period. Does the router keep track anywhere?
