Yea mines delayed at times also, but I cant say it only updates once a day. Last night usage at 11gb today 14 gb, but I did DL enough to make up the difference however it wasnt updated throughout the day

Yeah I have had this for about 2 months. Emailed Orcon about it and haven't heard back.

They need to seriously fix it as it can throw some users off with there usage going over it thinking there still under there monthly usage.

I fix stuff!

Still broken. This is another problem that has come about after I moved plans.
Even though I KNOW I downloaded 4GB this morning, my usage meter still tells me 0GB.

yes, for the last 3 months, especially towards the end of the billing cycle, the meter becomes slower and slower to update if it updates at all, its frankly very annoying as you dont know how much data you have left, this is the 3rd time in 3 months ive had to guess.
