Free usage isue

I pay for 30 gigs per "Month" and have "free usage" allocation between the hours of 12:am and 8:00 am if I require it.
A)    If I work between the hours of 1:00 am and 7:0am, thereby avoiding any discretionary overlap between the "paid for" and "free usage" periods, the amount of gigs used during the hours stated is "free usage" and not added to my paid-for 30 gigs.
B)    If I exceed my 30 gigs "prime time" paid for allowance, I will need to pay £1.00 per gig used.
Are both A) and B) correct please.

Re: Free usage isue

A) is correct assuming your free hours are midnight to 8.00am. The reason for this qualification is that for some of the legacy products the free time is midnight to 4.00pm
b) is probably correct but the cost and usage increments are product dependent
Which product are you on and have you considered moving to Extra with 60GB usage allowance between 8.00am and midnight

I thought the minimum purchase of extra bandwidth of 5GB for £5 which if you only use say 2GB, you loose the remaining 3GB when the new billing period starts.

Re: Free usage isue

the 5G was only for the current products,  Madasafish have some weird products, and some of our PN legacy  still use 2G extra
