My Broadband internet is for limited free download (1GB) every month. Beyond this limit, it is chargeable. I find the total downloaded bytes are more than 5GB although I actually used less than 1GB. Is it because of the fact that I did not disconnect the broadband when my PC remains idle for a prolonged period? How does downloaded bytes get increased when no page is open? Is it because of communication data exchanged between the server and my PC? I am ,therefore, interested to know how the server works when connected but no page is requested for. Alternatively, I would like to know how does the broadband server account for downloaded bytes.
