The early bird catches the worm!

Am I free to go back to sleep now?

Re: The early bird catches the worm!

Curioser and curioser? Might be coincidental to the story of my usage (or of my life - so probably not), but I think I've also just caught "a fish alive" in the pools as well. I rarely if ever get SPAM, but I got this message sent at 8.49 a.m. this morning from "Littlewoods" to "undisclosed-recipients"

** the click here link in the message - which I've manually typed below and edited with a DUMMYWORD to prevent others from inadvertantly clicking leads to a Ukrainian destination:

Still curious about this, but (cautiously) Googling 'Littlewoods' and 'mstreet' does find some ongoing live updating and grounds for suspiscion in the PhishTask

....back to counting sheep for now!

Re: The early bird catches the worm!

Sorry but I'm not actually sure what you're getting at here?
Is it that usage is being accrued when you're not using the Internet? As from your screenshots you were using the Internet to look at our website so I'd expect a small amount of usage (which is exactly what was shown).
The mail as far as I can tell is unrelated to us and looks to be obvious spam.

I wouldn't say 22GB was a small amount of usage!

Your billing period had just been reset. Between 6-8:30am.

Re: The early bird catches the worm!

But the VMBU at 6.00 a.m. clearly stated that what I was then observing related to this month's usage (Nov 22 - Dec 21). I did speculate later that there might be some glitch overlapping with last month's usage, but my (blue bar) off-peak usage for the whole of last month amounts to only 17.14GB. I'm sure you can understand why my worries were compounded when I further viewed the breakdown of the 22GB, which makes no sense at all, and is a physical impossibility? I wouldn't want similar errors (or glitches) ever to relate to my chargeable usage allowance.

Re: The early bird catches the worm!

The breakdown isn't 100% accurate, as we've stated previously and I believe it also says on the page. The total usage will be correct however occasionally types of usage get misclassified and fall into other areas.
The reason it was still showing at 6am is that we can't reset everyone's usage at exactly the same time, therefore it's staggered over the early morning hours.
