Just you? What makes you think it is excessive?
I average 1gb per day, but that is watching my usage, I could easily double or triple that if I really wanted to.

Depends on the router, some have a page where you view 'attached devices' also look for a setting in your router that allows you to turn on access control whether by mac or ip address (under wireless settings) and lock down the access to devices you know. Thats a start to see if your wireless is being leeched.

Support a locally made Linux based Operating System, try Linux Lite.

Your connection is theoretically capable of doing at least 50GB/day - 1GB/day is nothing :P

Yeah im going at around 1GB a day. Sometimes that goes to 2-3 when I download TV Shows/Movies. But yeah 1GB is about normal for me aswell.
