A few of my clients got caught out and cut down to dial up speed (which makes using a terminal server over the link a nightmare) and they are now issuing credits.

The article states the bung up was due to misconfiguration in preparations for tivo - which i think is zero rated against telecom data usage counters.

This was fixed a few weeks ago IIRC, affected customers has their data allowance doubled, and were credited.

It has also been discussed with various GZ users getting letters from Telecom about the error.

Slow news day perhaps? Interesting about TiVo tho...

My usage meter still isn't fixed, it worked again for a while until the 18th December but then stopped working again and now reads 0.00 everyday since then ..

Interesting, according to the link below from 'Your Telecom' it should be.

I would give the Broadband Help Desk a call and enquire.

Hate to be picky, but the article says nothing about misconfiguration.

It would have been nice and easy if it were misconfiguration.
