    Tech issues: Xbox One bandwidth usage page showing I've used 1.5 million TB last month...

    ...have you started a new multiplayer game never used before August? are you using too much streaming from console? Like Netflix or Mixer or Twitch....

    I think that the amount of data displayed on the console is a bit bugged, BUT you really goes over the 1TB limit of your provider, so something is wrong on the average data usage.

    xbox charges

    We pay an extra, lump sum, on a monthly basis to have our data cap removed (Canada).

    Keep a close eye on your usage, if you have a data cap. With 3 Xboxes, 1 PS4, 4 gaming computers, tablets, cell phones, and 4 TVs streaming Netflix at the highest quality, we’ve had months just in excess of 2TB of downloaded/streamed data.

    What is this?!?!

    Hey LadyJadey,

    Thanks for posting, and sorry to see the high bandwidth usage! Has your Xbox One's data usage looked accurate after 5/31? This may have been a visual bug, and your Xbox One console most likely has not reached anywhere near 3,600 TB of data usage. The most
    reliable tool to check internet usage will be through your ISP. Any bandwidth usage your Xbox One console actually uses will reflect on the ISP side. I would not worry about your Xbox One console using that much data unless your ISP is reflecting the same
    amount of usage.

    Hope this helps clear up the issue!

    Xbox wifi connection by smartphone tethering or internet key

    I went through a period of having to use hotspot tethering for internet on my console for a few months. I had unlimited data through AT&T and I had this exact same problem where the console stops connecting automatically and eventually doesn't connect/takes
    a really long time to connect. I just dealt with it and was patient and tried to get it to connect a lot and it normally eventually did.

    The problem is the streaming and internet speed from the phone to console is incredibly unreliable when using a mobile network for internet versus using Wi-Fi or a wired connection. In a sense, its just not powerful enough to effectively and reliably connect
    to the console for long periods of time for both streaming speed and data usage. Incredible data usage, which happens when hotspot tethering, causes the speed for internet and streaming to slow drastically. You may have reached your data caps and the streaming
    speeds are just so slow there's virtually no connection to be had.

    Here's a few things that may help.

    Nothing is wrong with your Xbox its just the internet service.

    High bandwidth usage; Xbox uploads lots of data

    If this usage is from amazon I'm unsure what information they are gathering. What I do know is that when you're streaming you are also uploading bits of data like browsing and streaming history. What Amazon or any other stream service ex. netflix, youtube
    or hulu does with this information I'm uncertain. I'm also unsure if its P2P, this is just my insight and knowledge on the matter. Your Xbox is also uploading data to the cloud as well that is using a small bit of data.

    Apologies if I wasn't able to 100% answer your question
