I'm new to Koodo and was shocked at how much data I used within a few hours; almost 2 Gigabytes. I downloaded about 500 hundred e-mails (it was a mistake due to a wrong setting) to my Mac using my phone's personal hotspot. And I also used my phone to try and figure out why I wasn't getting my email from Google. When I looked at the data usage on the website it looks like the data entries are duplicatedi.e. 5 MB used (same entry four or five times).
6:48:42 PM 5.00 MB Data Usage from/to $0.00
6:48:42 PM 3.36 MB Data Usage from/to $0.00
5:24:50 PM 2.81 MB Data Usage from/to $0.00
5:24:50 PM 5.00 MB Data Usage from/to $0.00
5:24:50 PM 5.00 MB Data Usage from/to $0.00
5:24:50 PM 5.00 MB Data Usage from/to $0.00
4:38:37 PM 5.00 MB Data Usage from/to $0.00
4:38:37 PM 5.00 MB Data Usage from/to $0.00
4:38:37 PM 5.00 MB Data Usage from/to $0.00
4:38:37 PM 5.00 MB Data Usage from/to $0.00
4:38:37 PM 5.00 MB Data Usage from/to $0.00
4:38:37 PM

This seems wrong to me. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Check your iphone. Settings>Cellular>Cellular Data Usage - Current Period

Does the data used on the phone come close to what is on your self serve?

Then it does look like Koodo's Data Usage information is correct.

it just looks weird on self serve because so much data was used so quickly

There is a major issue caused by Facebook's new autoplay feature. So, if you used facebook this maybe an issue for you as well. Turn off 'autoplay" on your facebook setting.
