"View My Usage" Tool

Is it possible to view usage for more than the previous 3 months?

Many thanks.

Unfortunately not. This information is archived after 3 months to keep the database size fairly constant and managable.

Sorry about that!

I have noticed that my usage tool is recording 4.67GB of Gaming which i never do. However my young grandchildren have recently been visiting and they have D/L childrens games to play,would this constitute Gaming :?:

Hi Nolan.no can do unfortunately, I deleted the games after they went home because surfing became very slow, however all was ok after removing them. I will check daily to see if the Gaming usage increases.There is no increase today at the moment.

Something is definately wrong with +nets Gaming Usage. My OFFPEAK gaming now reads 5.84GB,an increase of 1.17GB in the past 2 days yet I have only done normal surfing.How the hell can I consider PAYG when +net have erroneus figures. Cry

Somethings a little wrong here too. I've managed to pull 50GB :shock: total in 5 days!!!! I don't think so...

About 20GB of that is web browsing!

More annoying though, Its put me on level 1 management as i've exceeded 11Gb peak already. Hmmm...

Have you done any other downloading (e.g. P2P) or anything else that could have been picked up as gaming traffic in error? Do the total figures for each day look right?

What would you say it should be? Remember that VMBU measures both uploads and downloads, so if for example you've been using BitTorrent then this will be uploading as well as downloading and all this will count in VMBU.

The total amount of data transfer should be very accurate - the biggest issue is traffic being incorrectly identified, or incorrectly displayed on VMBU. Which will not be to the detriment of you, as it is for display purposes only.

For anyone not sure about their VMBU usage being accurate - one common readon we see for increased usage is the result of deploying an insecure wireless network. This can allow other people to hijack and use your connection.

From what I can see, your usage isn't showing anything near that. I think what you're looking at is not the total for today, but the total so far this billing month.

Today is your billing date, but your usage has not yet been reset for a new month. This will happen shortly.
