I've noticed that all usage from the past 2 days is registering at 0B on Snap's usage meter.

I'm fairly sure we have used several GB as everyone is home.

Is this a known fault, anyone else experiencing the same issue, perhaps a Christmas/New Year present from Snap?

common fault with Snap , lately they have been backdating the data when they fix it but you may also just get free data until they fix it. Who knows .

Same here. My usage was 0 for yesterday and this morning. From this afternoon it goes back to normal.

Has anyone else noticed some off peak usage counting as on peak?

According to my router around 500MB moved between 12am and 1am today.
The Snap usage meter shows just under 3GB of on peak usage for the 5th of December as of 1:57am, and no off peak data. Bulk downloads were started at 1AM.
I'm unsure if it happens at the end of off the off peak period.

i have noticed this a bit, usually its about 3GB when i have pushed 80 or so in off-peak though, so i dont really mind, i take it as a bonus.


noticed servers completely non-google related can often come under the free youtube too every so often.


not consistent, nor have i ever minded..

Generally I'm not moving that much data during off peak periods, and have noticed this issue in the past and ignored it.
I noticed it again tonight and figured I'd post in this thread about it since it's usage meter related.

As for non Google content being counted as free Youtube data, this doesn't affect me as I don't have that add on.
I assume they have white listed a certain IP range for this add on, and there are other caching servers (eg: Akamai) in that same IP range.

in terms of the google content, im talking servers that are in no way cdn servers or anything.

no way it was in the range, it was just an odd bug.


cant say i push numbers that big all that often, but when i do, i tend to notice this.. may have to set a night for it, and keep a real close eye on it.
