Am I getting ripped off?

im losing 5mb of data for 1 second? My log shows 1 second 5mb 2 seconds 5 mb. Then it’ll be 12 minutes at 5 mb then back to 1 or 2 seconds at 5mb each. What is that????

    Please check your phone's settings to see what is using all the data. Secondly, download an app like glasswire to monitor your usage live and on a daily basis. That can help you narrow down the culprit app.

    I've struggled trying to figure this out as well, and I've realized that the most MB at a time that gets recorded is 5MB, so say you stream a song or watch a video and it's 50MB, it'll show 5MB in succession 10 times.

    @JeffK : thanks for the clarification. It has been a wild 30 minutes trying to make sense of the repetitive 5MB deductions for mere seconds of usage.
