Does listening to my playlist online use up more data than downloading it?

Q: Does listening to my online playlists use up the same data transfer amount as downloading onto my hard drive?

My internet server tells me I can leave my internet on all the time and it will NOT use up my allowed data amount. Yet last month my account was put on kind of a slow allowed connect. When I called to see what the issue was I was told I had used up my monthly allowed amount. The only thing different I did that month was listen to my online playlist during the night.
