Checked my ADSL broadband usage today and noticed that it stopped recording on the 22nd July. Since then all the have shown 0 usage. Anyone else having trouble with the telecom meter.

riahon: Do you have tivo?


Yes I do. But I have had tivo for ages and been with telecom for about 3 months. The meter has only recently stopped working.

Thanks for that link. Yes it could be something to do with that, but never got a letter. Might have to phone them.

I can confirm it is due to the tivo. For some reason my tivo has only just been added to my broadband, and there is currently estimate time for repair of it. So it looks like my internet usage currently isn't getting metered.

There is a very significant amount of back-end infrastructure upgrades going on around this and the good times will only last for so long.  But for the moment your usage is un-metered if you purchased a Tivo off Telecom in the past.




I work for Spark, but as always my views are my own.

Thanks, I actually don't get anywhere near my 120GB cap anyway, so it isn't going to benefit me.
