Is it possible that I used over a gig of data when I tethered my N7 and surfed the web for 2 hours?

that sounds fantastic. but there are couple of things to consider.
hi-def video/audio streaming on N7
that particular date, you had to adjust the graph manually to select it. its not very precise like starts at midnight-ends at 11.59 PM etc.
if you tether your other computers and they stream (online gaming)
i hope you have your hotspot password protected so no ones leeching off your connection.


for example i sometimes watch youtube videos on my laptop. last night i was watching this documentary at 720p. it was 1.3GB in size

Now that I think about it, I did watch an hour-long episode of a show on Netflix. Must be it. Thanks
