Question (and a warning!) about Roku and your internet usage?

So Black Monday I picked up a Roku stick.. seemed like a great idea (and better than shomi which I recently cancelled) and $50 well spent at the time... Only really started using it this month. I have a 300gb plan which rolls over on the 9th of the month. As of today, I am @ 305gb, and swear I did not watch enough to justify that sort of usage. Until my brother came to visit last month, I never came close to 75gb/month, and despite 2 computers on the go still had 25gb left over. Does anyone who has used this device know how to get it to stop eating up such a vast amount of bandwidth?


What bothers me the most, is I have 5 days off booked the 1st week of January, surfing the net was my idea of a perfect stay-cation, as I work all through Xmas. Now I am not even sure I will be able to even access my email, or even get this post uploaded to ask advice. I don't think I will use this Roku thing again except very sparingly..  I think other people need to be warned about it's usage.


Any pointers?
