Some routers collect traffic statistics which can be reset and
read at any time, typically through their web interfaces.
(You don't say what's hanging off the USB port.)


 current "month". ISP *EXPLICITLY* states the numbers 'approximate'
<lol> ;/

Presumably there's something between your USB port and your ISP?

A T-Mobile WiFi Hotspot with wifi capability turned off. I.E. just being used as a modem. It's identified on Mate's top panel as an "Ethernet wired connection". I routinely use ~1.2 GB of a 2 GB data cap - was formerly a happy user of a 56k modem.



Yes, I wouldn't expect anything better than daily stats from the
ISP itself. Just monthly is poor.
