Hi @jbmac and welcome to the community.


Could any of the devices that are connected to your WIFI updated in the background?


Did any of you emails include any large attachments?


Many thanks,

Re: Rationing Use of 4G Wifi

Thanks for your suggestions. I don't think any device could have used over 10GB of my data allowance in under an hour! I'm wondering whether yesterday's apparent cyber attack on home routers may have done something My wifi router crashed suddenly in the afternoon, although it was powered up, and I had to reboot. It was after I reconnected that the data allowance was suddenly "eaten up". Maybe EE could advise on this one so I'll contact them.
