Howdy!

just wanted to check if anyone else is seeing any odd behaviour with the Broadband Internet Usage Meter on VF.
I'm a cable customer in Wellington. Recently upgraded plan to 150GB. Plan dates changed as a result. Last period ran from 2nd April through to 18 April. 
However, last usage meter update was at 16:47 on the 17th. New plan period has started and is not visible on the usage pages either.

Any confirmation\response appreciated.

Cheers.

I just logged into mine (I also have the 150gb plan).  My meter has also stopped on the 17th.

Here's what it looks like today.  Stops at the 17th.

Thanks for the feedback\checking, looks like something decided to have an Easter break!

:)

I'm sure its been asked before...if the usage meter is not tracking usage...does a train leaving the station in Wellington use any traffic for the long weekend?

Yep,

"Telstraclear Broadband Usage" by Whitestone technologies, I use it on Android phone for HFC cable network and works perfectly, has a good widget too.


As for Vodafone's online usage meter showing no data since 17th, I'm right near the end of my billing cycle and not much data to play with and have no idea how much exactly I have left, let's hope it's a easter freebee?

I wasn't looking for an app, but downloaded this and it looks quite good.

Wonder if it's just the website mucking up, or if the meters aren't working at all.

 

Time for a download spree?

Data is still been counted as it should so not a smart idea
