How to check the data usage in the Module? | Telit Cinterion IoT Developer Community

I am using two different modules: ENS22-E, and EXS82-W.
Both of them are working fine, connecting and transmitting/receiving data into the MQTT server and so on.
However, I wonder if there is a way to track the data usage (how many bytes were TX and RX).
This information is useful because I can estimate the monthly data usage, so I can get a proper data plan for this usage, for example 1GB data per month.
There's 'AT^SISI?' command which can display the number of bytes received or sent since last successful AT^SISO write command i.e. since the last connection was opened. These values can also be read with 'AT^SISO?' command.
But you need to note that this command accounts the application data only and the operator will charge you for more data than you can calculate with this command. Maybe it would be the best solution if you had access to the data consumption on the operator side via some customer web panel.
