Skype Bandwidth Cosumption?

After a considerable amount of pain I have Skype Sound + Video working from
the repos on Karmic Beta 1 :) Now can chat to my parents in New Zealand. The
Logitech WebCam E3500 actually works pretty well.
Once concern is that a remember a fair amount of fuss with regards to Skype
peer-peer usage consuming your bandwidth even when offline, so long as the skype
client is still running. With my cap at 7GB/Month this is a big issue.
Is this still an issue if behind a Firewall? I have my router set to block all
incoming connections and allow all outgoing.
