Has any noticed a big increase in data use since upgrading to Mavericks?
I have gone over my cap for the first time and the daily increase started a day or so after upgrading my iMac to Mavericks. I also upgraded my mother's Mac mini at the same time and she has hit 80% and again the daily data both up and down is way more than she ever has used. She often doesn't use her computer for days on end and then when she does it is usually only for email.

I am out of the country and have texts from home about internet slowing to a crawl. Won't be able to get to the computers until getting back to NZ on weekend.

Yes, but in my case it's pretty obvious that it relates to an app update for iMovie which appears to have got 'stuck'. Every time it attempts the update it fully or partially downloads it (I think it's over 1Gb) but it fails to install, and on the next attempt it's back to square one.

When I get the time to look into it properly I may just remove iMovie altogether since I don't use it anyway.

Any recommendations on what is the best way to try and identify what is uploading or downloading the data?

Use the activity monitor in /Applications/Utilities, click on the network tab, and then sort by sent or received data.
