I think if you have the 4k box and were recording the 4k sports channel and a HD channel, whilst streaming 4k from an app such as Prime on the box, then you would be using around 50 to 60 Mbs. If you aren't using the box at all though then it's essentially using nothing. Do a speedtest with the box off and not recording and you'll see what's available.
Is your TV connected via ethernet or wifi? I would try connecting the TV direct to the hub with an ethernet cable and see if that makes any difference.
Thanks Andy. We'll give that a whirl. We have tried putting the YouView box into standby mode and that didn't seem to make a difference. The engineer said it would use 50-60Mb even if it wasn't doing anything and I couldn't see why it would do that. We'll try different laptops as well in case our poor old Surface Pro 3 can't cope anymore.
That certainly isn't right about Youview using data at all!
Turn it off, and see what's happening then.
How do you know the box is using 60Mb? Is that from the engineer comment?
Are your devices on all the time, do they have a cloud backup routine?
