It is possible that AVAST is actually tunnelling data through it to scan for malicious URLs, etc, which is causing your bandwidth program to think that the cause is Avast.
There isn't much documentation to prove any information of bandwidth usage, but I am aware that Kaspersky is quite a good AV to try out. It has its own built-in bandwidth manager, that separates from other managers, because it's aware of the data it tunnels, and is thusly more accurate. You can turn off URL-scanning/safe-search (pretty useless most of the time), which will stop it calling back and forth with their servers.
Also, make sure to untick participating with their "anonymous" reports to protect your privacy and save bandwidth, if that's what you're all about.

So I would like have a good backup that will NOT use cloud based ANYTHING to protect me. Plus I don't need a cloud to keep my identity safe. Not putting myself out there, does a better job of that anyway.
