    Hello friends, I have installed net+ internet in my house and the package is 100gb with a speed of 20mbps, for a month. It's not even a month, mainly 20 days approx and the company is saying I have consumed my 100 GB data package. Is it possible?
    I am using only in the evening from 8 to 11pm daily. Other times, the router remains switched off, even I plug out the router. I am confused how it is possible. Even if you say someone else is using it, then it is not possible. Because it remains plugged out and house remains locked until I come back.
    Please help and make me understand this. I am currently unable to contact the net+ company.

    You have to see whether there are some background applications that "eat up" your bandwidth for the time your router and PC(s) are ON. In addition to that, 100GB is not enough for nowadays. Each youtube video (song) in HD is taking around ~40mb. And with this bandwidth you have 100/30 = 3.3GBs per day which is equal to ~82 youtube songs (in my office the youtube is ON for 8 hours straight = 160 songs for the time being - do the math).

    They must have given you a user dashboard to access billing data, user information and usage data.
    Login to that and check your usage.
    But if they don't share that information, then its also possible that the bill is dubious

    Ahh I see. Never heard of that isp lol sorry.

    @Puja
    100 GB is pretty much nothing if you watch videos in HD. That being said, get a bandwidth monitoring software and see if the company is cheating.

    They gave us nothing like the user panel, login panel or else. I think they are fraud and doing some bloody money making tricks.

    I don't use YouTube at all. Actually I do freelancing and i use the net for SEO work. If you know SEO, it is only about browsing the websites and signing up and just logging them out. Not more than this.

    In that case it cannot ever cross 100GB. Either they are lying about the bandwidth, or somebody is stealing your internet connection. Do you by chance have an open WiFi?

    ya, its possible. Last time Microsoft take update 2 time. Every time i see after setup its taking 12GB ISO download, If you setup your PC 2 time then then it can be used here 12+6*2 = 36GB. Almost soft are taking some day later update they can be used. You can check which background app running in your PC, Go task manager. I think its happen in your in your PC. No problem in the provider

    I am using the net on my laptop with wifi connectivity. But it remains for only 8pm to 11 pm for SEO work only. Never used youtube. And when the work is done I immediately switch it off. Even the company said that the speed will be 20mbps. One day by chance I checked I was 8mbps but I thought it fluctuates sometimes and never paid attention to it. I am really confused, either the company is lying or someone is stealing my data.

    I'm so sorry to hear that. Is this your ISP's sales page? http://www.netplus.co.in/broadband.php

    First, they are using a mobile number as an official number. That is a BIG NO from me on that part due to not being REAL business professionals.

    Secondly, how do you log in to the internet? You must have to log in using your username and pass? And did you change your default login pass to a long special character pass after you got your internet? Try seeing a page for that OR call your operator right now and tell him that you want to know usage details.

    Third, get a local ISP with unlimited data, i.e., NO 100 GB or 200 GB FUP s#it. Don't ever go for FUP internet!

    Limited FUP Internet is a huge mistake. You are doing freelancing, mostly IM marketing, so you need to watch youtube videos throughout the day even if you are an expert in this field.

    Just get a local ISP. There are bound to be some in your area. Don't go for Airtel or such. They are the WORST!

    And if you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for Installation + Monthly charge?

    Nice catch @ShiningWarrior . Just checked their google reviews. Not to mention, they suck.

    @Puja I think you should probably look for another ISP. Try Airtel's broadband, they are pretty accurate in my opinion. Yeah they have FUP, but should be enough bandwidth for your need. If you have Hathway in your locality, try that out too. They mention 100GB FUP but I always get 50mbps no matter what.

    My pack is 599+tax. I didnt pay anything yet as it is not a month yet and they said me to pay only 599+tax rupees for all and for each month. Installation was free.

    Don't pay them unless they show you proofs of the data used!
