hey guys im on the xtra 2mbps/1gb plan and my month starts on 27th,, most of the time i exceed 1gb and get slowed to dialup but on the 26th of every month i get full speed and i usualy do all game updates on 26 as i see that its not counted in the new month starting frm the next day,, but last and this time i downloaded stuf on 26th last month and i got emails saying i had reached 80% bandwidth of the new month on 28-29th,,, and tis time too i got email today and i saw the usage meter i had reached 800mb ,,, but i never downloaded anything after midnight of 26th ,,,, i think this is wrong they shudnt be putting my previous mnths bandwidth onto next month ,,

Perhaps they have changed your billing cycle?

And please, no SMS abbreviations. It makes it hard to understand things...

Welcome to Geekzone Enfield.

I was looking at XTRA's Usage Meter today (which I don't do very often) and noticed this piece of information which would seem to explain the problem you are having:

If you want to make sure that your usage gets included for a particular monthly bill, reboot your broadband modem just before midnight on the last day of your monthly billing cycle.

Give that a try next month and see if it helps.  I have not seen this statement on the usage meter before so maybe it is a policy that has been recently introduced by XTRA.
