Out of curiosity, who is your VOIP service provider?

I use ObiHai, and find that it exchanges traffic with its "server" continuously.

I've not recently attempted to check how much, and don't remember any figures, 
but it wouldn't surprise me if that accounts for some, most, all of the traffic 
you report.

And, maybe Android smartphones do something similar, especially if they are 
setup for VOIP or some similar service.
