The official explanation is at https://portal.plus.net/support/broadband/usage/vmbu.shtml#breakdownHelp.
I think it is mainly traffic which for some reeason or other couldn't be classified into one of the other categories. There shouldn't be much under the Other heading.

In my case, I suspect that it's VPN traffic when I'm working from home.
