"I just turn my exede modem off when I am not using it. Is that a bad thing to do ?"
Doing so breaks sync with the gateway ... that will affect the accuracy and timeliness of the usage meters and so forth.
You would be better serviced I think by just disconnecting the LAN cable from the rear of the Modem. That keeps everything in "sync" but makes it 100% certain that nothing on your network can connect or use data.
Valid point but it still pays to have your own "measurement point:" to either confirm or compare your usage to what is claimed by your ISP. If you have no data how can you begin to build a case for investigation of ..... flaky Algorithms used by your ISP.
Remember Engineers while only respond to ... data.
