      The thing is, they did not start measuring until a couple of weeks ago. In most cases the actual period being measured is much less than the full period. The next period is going to be the first one covering the full month.

      Yes,I've just realised that my dates go well beyond a month and I agree that Sky can not take this as a fair measurement.They have added almost an extra week to my usage so thats one strike already.I wonder how many people they are going to pull this stunt on ?

      But have they? For most the meter went active around the 16-17 Nov and the measuring did not start until then. This means the actual period being measured is only 16-17 days.

      That's even worse then for Deathstar and myself and god knows how many others as that means he's got close to his allowance and I've gone over mine in LESS than a true month!! and I dont really use mine to excess, couple of movie downloads and that's about it.

      Might have to start thinking about upgrading because if that's how quickly 10Gb goes well.......

      Why think about it, if I was in your shoes I would let them upgrade you.

      That's what I would do/am doing too. Keep the lower cost package as long as you can.

      Mmm of course I should. It'll be interesting to see how much over the 10Gb and how often before they do so too.

      Re: Sky Broadband Usage On MySky?

      Well my usage has been recorded since the 29/10/09 -> 03/12/09 and apparently i've used 11.91gb.....But as these dates are WAAAAY over a month I hope they are not going to pull a fast one.....

      Your Broadband Usage Tool
      Current package - Sky Broadband Everyday

      Usage for the period: 29/10/09 - 08/12/09
      These dates usually match your billing period.
      You have gone over your allowance

      You can carry on using your current Sky Broadband package, but for truly unlimited usage, plus faster download speeds*, why not upgrade to Sky Broadband Unlimited? To ensure you're on the right package, we’ll upgrade you if you go over your allowance again within the next 5 months.

      *Depending on your location and line quality.


      10GB
      11.91GB 0GB
      Last updated: Next allowance starts in: Allowance this period: GB and % used:
      03 Dec. 07:49 4days 10GB 11.91GB = 119.1%

      Going by this they already have! You should contact them about this asap. Point out to them that your period is 40 days for which you should receive an allowance of 13.3 Gb, not 10Gb.
