I don't know. I thought encrypting everything ate up more bandwidth with more overhead, and I just notice the little padlock icon by the URL more and more. Something is sure driving up the number of bytes for basically an unchanged daily reading pattern. Don't notice it, of course, when using WiFi. Maybe it's just more cloudcrap going on, but that shouldn't have changed much, either, and it's megabytes. Darn NSA.
I understand, except for my problem. :)
