Is Cox internet usage accurate? I read that 20 GB of data is 240 hrs of video streaming. How is it possible that I have used 20 GB of data in one day when i wasn't even home?

You're mixing speed and storage. A constant 25 Mbps (megabit...not megabyte) of data would be about 10 hours for 21 gigabits.
20 gigabytes of data, however, could be a couple HD movies.
6 gigabytes is 1 HD movie. (Nothing fancy just "standard" HD)20 gigabytes of HD movies would be about 3 HD movies.
I've read on the Forum updates for video consoles are quite huge…perhaps 20 GB. A gamer would need to confirm.
recorded future programs may record when you're not there.
As General Beringer said in WarGames... "Just unplug the GD thing [DVR]!"
Do you have security cameras like Ring or Nest doorbells? If quality is set to high and 24/7 recording (or on motion and a tree or something is constantly setting it off) that could use a lot of data.
