Why is my new Eero 6 router uploading so much data?

I just got an Eero 6 (only a week old) and I noticed very sporadic slow upload speeds. My Netgear wireless speeds are 400 down/20 upload, my Eero wireless speeds are 400 down / upload can vary from 6, 10, 15. What was very strange is... I checked network activity and noticed on the first day i set up my new Eero's main router had used up 30+GB upload (crazy right). Note I only have 1 test devices on the new wireless network, which is an iPhone. I checked the activity on the iPhone and its only uploaded less than a GB. Ive been monitoring the main router upload and its is still on the high side maybe approx 3-6GB upload. Anyone else seeing this type of upload activity? Why is Eero uploading so much data?

  • I’m having weird stuff happening also. Insane amounts of upload. So much that it shouldn’t even be possible with my plan. My internet connection is only 10Mbps for upload
