    Plan 3 mbps with 7gb per day internet usage, is it really 7gb per day? or Lower?

    tjstorm

            Alam ko po na ang internet usage ng plan ko (3mbps) is 7gb per day at pag nagexceed ako it will drop to 1 mbps na lang tapos refresh 6am kinabukasan. Familiar po ako sa sinasabi nilang FUP - Fair Usage Policy.

       

           Ang concern ko po is parang hindi pa yata umabot ng 7gb usage ko ay choked na agad speed ko down to 1 mbps. Twice na nangyari to. Kanina lang yung 2nd instance na parang nag exceed usage ko prematurely. Ang ginawa ko kaninang morning nanood ng 50-minute video running on 480p (approx about 500mbps) and  isa pang movie na 2 hours pero on 360p (approx 1.2gb) tapos browsing for about an hour and youtube sa android for about an 30minutes --youtube on android consumes lesser bandwidth than on a PC (obviously because it uses lesser resolution) so from 9am yun to about 2pm na yata yun, tapos nag drop na to 1 mbps speed ko. Contact ako globe and hoping for a miracle from their wonderful customer service representative, Nagsimula akong kalmado kasi nga magtatanong lang at gusto ko ma-raise yung concern ko pero I ended up almost bursting to flames kasi you have to baby talk the representative para maintindihan nila sinasabi mo  tapos sila pa yung may lakas ng loob na maging sarcastic sa mga sagot nila - well that's a separate issue. So nag download ako ng BITMETER -- it will measure both upload and download realtime and eto results so far -- it started monitoring my usage 8pm ngayon lang, it has already consumed  300.59 mb and time of this writing is 12:35am, so todo browse ako at skype at youtube on my PC for almost 5 hours tapos 300 mb lang na consume ko. 

       

           I might be wrong din with my calculations so ask ko lang din ang community kasi mas may alam pa kayo kesa mga walang kwentang customer support ng globe, Sino po sa inyo may first hand experience ng ganitong issue? kung meron man may naka experience gaya nito may ginawa po ba ang globe to address your issue? anong reliable software ang pwede mag monitor ng internet usage? wala kasi marecommend ang globe at parang wala rin sila usage claculator.... is BITMETER good enough?

       

       

      Thanks,
