Voip creating massive useage even when not used!

I've been using Voiptalk since June but have found my Plusnet monthly useage going up from the old level of about 2GB to 10GB last month!  I don't use the phone that much either for incoming or outgoing calls - perhaps 2-3 hours per month.
When I looked at my useage statistics it seems that most of my useage is voip, but strangely a fair bit of that is at night, during the free hours.  This suggests that something is amiss.  I know no-one is on the phone at night and my router is turned off between 1am and 6am!
I'm using a Fritz!Box Fon WLan router, which carries the calls to normal phones.  The Fritz!box has data on useage.  Oddly it gives even higher figures than Plusnet's  - 316MB yesterday vs Plusnet quoted 255MB, including 74MB night (free) usegage.
Any ideas on what I should be looking for to work out the problem, or any tips as to how to keep useage down?
Thanks
Colin
