Data usage indicated on my router not corresponding to Telkom's indicated usage

I have a Telkom Huawei B593s-601 LTE router and i have the Telkom 10G (plus 10G night surfer) per month package.  I have noticed that the amount of data used, as indicated by my router, and that which Telkom shows i have used differs substantially. For instance, i have cleared my routers data usage indicator just after midnight at the end of the previous month.  Thus starting the count from zero.  Today the router shows that i have used 5.09 G, while Telkom shows i have only 3938MB left. 5.09 x 1024MB = 5212MB.   10G = 10240MB, 10240MB - 5212MB = 5028MB left?? The router counts night surfer data too, of which i used a small portion, and i did not even add that here.   So, 5028MB - 3938MB = 1090MB!  Where did that go???  I know that nobody removed the sim from the router at any stage through the month.  So is  the router's counter out, or what am i missing here? Can somebody help with this?

@webtron not sure, but sometimes there is a discrepency in how 1 Mb is calculated. Is it 1000Kb or 1024Kb
