I don't tether my phone very often, but have never used this much data when I was doing it. Is this usual? I was just at a few websites and checking my bank and email.

But do you know what your computer was doing in the background? Your computer carries on all sorts of tasks which require no interaction from you. Downloading OS updates, for example.
