That darned usage bar graph

Maybe it's just me, but I really dont understand the Usage Bar Graph.
I look at it every few days to see how much of my 1Gb I have used. What I don't get is why the data is made up of both FREE & PAID-FOR stat's?
Why does FREE usage count against my allowance?

It doesn't, but it is there to actually show you your full usage, peak and off-peak.
The dark section is your peak time usage which corresponds to the peak time usage box and is the figure that is important.

Peter,
thanks for explaining it.
I'm not sure how useful the graph is though (-:

There should be a breakdown of peak and off-peak in figures below the graph too.
