I bought the prepaid telecom t-stick for $29 with 512mb free data in december.
I used the 512 mb in december and have not used it since so I thought I had no more data.
THis morning , I checked and my t-stick was working - I called telecom and they said I had 500mb of free data, and I also had $5 credit amount.
I explained this to telecom and they had no idea of how I got the 500mb of free data, or the $5 credit. I was wondering if this was due to the recent telecom outages, although I do not live in the affected area.
Telecom don't deduct the full plan value at the start of the calendar month. You pay 10c per MB up to $29.95 and then receive 200MB free.
When you look at your balance you are on the 512MB plan and have 512MB available and only have $5 credit. You haven't yet paid for the entire 512MB. When you use the internet your have used your first 50MB will be charged at 10c/MB you will find your balance drops to $0 and you won't be able to use the internet until you top up.
