Hi Guys,

Just recently got a very basic Xtra 1Gb plan just to test out.
I hit my cap the day after and it seems as though I still remain uncapped speed-wise.
Yet the usage meter says that I've done about 1.6G.

Does this happen often?

Thanks
Shiver

Happens less often....

I had totally uncapped for a long time, and used to treat it nicely (e.g. 50% over sometimes), but the month I went about 500% over, they capped me on time every time from there on in...

don't really mind actually.
just got worried for a bit that I was somehow on a excess usage plan and would be paying for the extras! :D

Same thing happened to me. Smile Got away with it for a few months then blew my cap by about 8GB from then on I was throttled as soon as I hit my cap.
