Continual up and down-stream of data while idle – why might this be happening?

Our dorm internet always had a continual up and downstream of data when you connected to the WiFi.

Due to this, one would have downloaded about 2 Mbytes of data after being connected to the WiFi for 2 minutes.

Now, since this was happening from the get go, i never questioned this – after a recent blackout however the continual up and downstream completely stopped.

Now i am wondering, what could the reasons for such a continual data stream be?
And is the absence of said WiFi behaviour something one should raise as a concern to IT, or can this just be ignored?
