Since Christmas I have noticed that we are running out of data much quicker than before. We have two iphones, an iPad, a PC, a laptop, Sonos, Chromecast and Netflix. There are only 2 of us and usually use the phones, PC and laptop. We have a data limit of 64 GB a month and easily use up that nowadays. We have now had to limit watching anything on Chromecast and Netflix because of the high amount of data it uses (eg 2GB for a 2 hour film on Netflix). I even noticed yesterday that with my phone on (with nothing in the background) and using my laptop for browsing the internet, in 45 minutes we had lost over 1GB. This is clearly ridiculous! Can anyone help??

Depending on if the laptop is MAC or Windows, that constantly checks for updates with Windows 10
So does phones unless you have manually turned off everything to auto sync etc.
Netflix as you say uses 2GB for every 2 hours but this is soon to be reduced to 1GB as they are doing something their end to compress the programmes.
But there must be some pretty big downloading happening if you are using over 64GB a month.
There is 2 in my house and we don't use no more than around 20GB

Go within the settings and turn off automatic updates.
Also go within the windows store app and turn upper auto updates on the apps as well.
