    You're going to have to phrase your sentences in a more structured manner for people to understand you. From doing post-surgery on this submission I gathered that you are asking why "it" shows 100MB of bandwidth usage when you are supposedly unmetered during the times you have it downloaded.

    First, you need to clarify something:

    1) Where is this "100MB" reading you are seeing? At your ISP?

    2) Are you sure that you are actually not downloading anything before 2AM?

    3) Do you sync your computers time? Is the time accurate on your computer?

    4) Is this a Windows machines? With automatic updates?

    Provide much more information.

    I'd say it's uploading from his filesharing program from 12 to 2 (standard sharing)
    Which is counted as downloading by the ISP

    i check this download data from bsnl site itself ie form isp
    my time is always correct
    i do not download any data before that
    no automatic updates are there

    Try it one night without uTorrent enabled
    If there is no (or very little) downloading. Then it must be uTorrent downloading or uploading before 2am
