Broadband usage question

I understand that a router will still sync whilst not in use by a few kb or mb, but is 58MB overnight usual. (I have not turned anything on that is connected to the router wired or wireless)
Both myself and wife have been at work since 6:30 am also

@simonb1
I'll see if I can find out any more about how that usage was categorised and let you know.
UPDATE: Where as 58mb can happen overnight on a connection that's "idling" it's a little on the high side. I wouldn't worry too much (unless it becomes a regular occurrence) I'm wondering though if you've used something like Bit torrent where the torrents have continued to track against your IP after you've gone offline?

Re: Broadband usage question

Thanks Adam
The last time I used UTorrent was probably well over a week ago, If I need to d/load something its usually done via Newshosting.
