Looks like my system apps are uploading something at 1+ Mb/s.
They have been ongoing for about 10minutes, then I kill data. Once it's restored they go back to uploading.
Happening on LTE. I have zero spare bandwidth, webpages wont load.
I can't make them stop!
I am not rooted.

Does anyone have any idea why these apps are uploading at Mb/s?

Update:
I rebooted a few times and got a completely new IP address.
My previous IP address whois info was registered to "DoD Network Information Center."
(30.248.181.***) Which is where my data was being uploaded to. Was it using me/my bandwidth like a VPN or a pass through for other people?

Now the massive connections have stopped and everything is back to normal.
I'd still like to know why "Settings" was uploading 1Mb/s for the last 3 hours.
