Samknows whitebox usage

I have been participating in the Samknows scheme for a number of years, but have never had an ISP where I can check usage as they have said it is unlimited, therefore not required. Looking at the stats provided by PN, I can see a lot of usage in off peak hours *between 100 + 200mb every night). Would this be the tests that Samknows carries out on the line? Overnight usage was minimal when the connection first went live as the Samknows box was still pluggedi into the old router as we weren't here and had a dog sitter. The usage going up coincides with the box being plugged into the correct router.
Seems an awful lot of data to use on line tests!!

100Mb overnight seems typical. Judging by mine anyway!

My average is 42 to 45mb all the days we get up after 8am.

Re: Samknows whitebox usage

Thanks for the replies. I remember when signing up it was advised not to use a metered connection because of the throughput, but just didn't realise how much throughput until now!
