Overnight usage question

If you start a download at say 11pm that will take 2 hours,
would the second hour be correctly recorded as overnight usage.
Thanks

Re: Overnight usage question

I am going with yes.
I would imagine it's quite easy for the systems to know what time it is and stop/start counting data.

Re: Overnight usage question

They should split this correctly into peak and overnight. BT supply usage information in blocks and any block extending over midnight (or 8am) is completely disregarded to avoid usage being apportioned incorrectly.
