How to Check Your AT&T Internet Usage

How you go about checking your AT&T Internet usage varies depending on which service you’re using. Each Internet-related AT&T service -- including wireless, home Internet and GoPhone -- has its own Web login page that provides access to your account and its associated usage stats. If you’re using a smartphone or tablet, you can also monitor usage through the official myAT&T app.

Check Usage on PCs and Tablets

To check your wireless Internet usage using your PC or tablet, visit the myAT&T login page and log in to your account using your AT&T user ID and password. Hover your mouse over “Billing & Usage” and select “Usage Since Last Bill” in the Usage column to view your Internet usage.

To check home Internet usage, visit the Phone & Internet login page and log in to your account.

Check Wireless Usage on Your Smartphone

If you have a wireless account with AT&T, you can also check your Internet usage on your smartphone or tablet. First, you need to download and install the myAT&T app. Once you’ve installed the app on your device, open it and log in to your AT&T account. If there are multiple wireless accounts linked to your main AT&T account, select the one you want to check. Press or tap the “Menu” button and select “Usage.” If you’re a Mobile Share or FamilyTalk customer, select the “Data” tab to view your usage.

Monitoring GoPhone Internet Usage

If you’re an AT&T GoPhone customer, you check your data usage slightly differently. Log in to your account using the GoPhone login page. If you’ve never logged in before, use your 10-digit phone number and associated password. Until you change it, the password is the last four digits of your GoPhone phone number. Once you’re logged in, select “Usage Summary” and then click the “Account History” tile. Click the “History Type” drop-down menu and select “Data and Messaging” to view your Internet usage.

Delays, Managing Data Use and Additional Information

The usage figures provided by AT&T don't necessarily reflect your most recent usage. It can sometimes take up to 72 hours for data usage to appear on your account. Data used while travelling outside of the United States can sometimes take up to 60 days to appear.

Check your Internet usage regularly to prevent overage charges. When viewing videos on a mobile device, select standard-definition content whenever possible.

If you’re a wireless customer, you can also phone *3282# at any time and AT&T will send you a text message detailing the amount of Internet you’ve used since your last bill.
