hello my name is XXXXXX XXX i will be assisting you
i am very familiar with this issue
let me know when you are available
what is your name please
Rodney I am very familiar with situation working for state dept and assigning verizon jetpacks....I am ready to provide you with the reason ..if for some reason its not what you expect PLEASE DO NOT RATE ME...just request me to opt out ....is that fair?
ok ...the jetpack works this way....its usually not how much you use it ...its what you are using it for...certain sites or certain activities on the internet drain your gb plan...usually what we used to do at the state dept is upgrade the plan to an unlimited plan or upgrade them to a hotspot which is unlimited
usually verizon can give you a chart that tells you what most of your data went to ...so you will know what activity is draining the most data
They say they can't see where I am going anymore. Guess I have to ask NSA for that.
they should be able to...trust me ...i worked for both GSA and State Dept...they can tell...this is how we know GSA employees spend most of their time on youtube and facebook...because the data peaks...
my honest suggestion will be a hotspot....to allow you unlimited usage...for example one of our execs had the jetpack and went overseas.....he used up his plan sending emails and skyping (in ONE DAY)....we had to immediately upgrade him to an international plan and provide him a hotspot for unlimited usage
Is that all you suggest? That is no help.
i understand rodney but i am being straight forward with you...there is no setting that will change you data usage in mac.....
would you like me to opt out...i figure i save you sometime ...but i guess its not what you want to hear
And no way to find out what is using the data?
no if it was a phone ...i can show you how to do that ...the jet packs just have the menu to set it up ...but not to see the data usage....your provider is suppose to be able provide you with that....sir i believe in honest....as i initially stated...i have dealt with this many time..anything else will frustrate you more...
Thanks, please opt out.
but i will be glad to opt out if that is what you want
no problem....opting out now
Rodney we can to an agreement not to rate me and ask me to opt out...why are rating me...no matter what we tell you..you will not accept it ...we have diagnosed and told you the issue...but i guess this is you way of not being charge
My other computer did not use near as much data as the Mac. You did not help me to find out why, and how to make it use less, or find out why or where it is using so much.
Ok, Yes I put both windows and Mac on manual downloads so they do not download updates until I tell it to. I don't use itunes at all. How can I use my firewall to exclude every program from net access list, except my web browser?
Not using icloud, dropbox, carbonite, or any type of automatic sync or backup programs that I know of.
I installed netbalancer on the windows side, but what can I put on the Mac side?
I did the compatibility check on Mac with Peak Hour, and it couldn't find any compatible devices
