ModemStatsService draining battery

It's been talked about on this forum a few times, but I still don't know the answer.

I have Tesco UK edition and when I check my battery stats, it shows, that 35 % of the batery is used by "screen" (of course) and another 40 % is by ModemStatsService .. the rest is just low % .. but I wonder what this ModemStatsService is, what it does and why it uses my battery more than the screen itself. I can force stop the process, but after few hours it restarts itself again. I wouldnt care about that if it werent using my battery even more than the screen.

Anyone please?

Have you tried to reset the device? I also have 8GB MotoG from Tesco UK. Havent had any battery drain issues with both 4.3 and 4.4 Tesco ROMs. The first is always Screen.

No one seems to really know what this service does. Can anyone enlighten us as to what it does and how to stop it? It's keeping my phone awake 100%of the time now. Did it come with the 4.4.2 patch? This thread was created before that patch existed.

I've rebooted my phone and the process hasn't restarted. I sure would like to know it's purpose.

Pure guesswork - but I reckon it's there to keep track of Data usage for the Data usage screen in Settings. It's a Motorola system app. I've never seen it appear in Battery Stats.
