I have bot h a Vodafone ADSL connection, and a UFB connection

I use my orcon fibre connection until the data has been reached, and then swap to Vodafone ADSL connection in which the modem is fully powered down....

However after reading another thread, with a usage query, i thought i'd check if our usage metre does the same and it has. i swapped over to that connection on the 15th of this month. as you can see thats when it peaks again....

Heres a pasted version of the usage we've used....

Vodafone modems are automatically linked to your account, regardless of where they're being used...

Not good, but it is what it is...

Our modems configure themselves with credentials etc based on the account to which each serial number is linked. The line ID it is connecting from has no bearing on this, as long as a Vodafone connection is detected, the modem will use the credentials of the account it is linked to. It can be disabled if needed, eg if the customer wants to give their modem to someone else.

does that mean that the person who is using it now wouldn't be seeing any usage counted on their account as it is all going to this other person?

That is correct. This is pretty rare, but can happen. When it does, we zap the extra usage from the other affected account to make sure they aren't impacted further. Most people notice pretty quickly if they are being charged for bandwidth when they shouldn't be.
