MANAGING YOUR SPEND
If you are a residential customer, we will help you control your spend by providing you with notifications via SMS when you reach 50%, 85% and 100% of data allowance that is included in your prepaid broadband plan.
Usage notifications do not occur in real time but with a delay of 48 hours after you actually reached the respective thresholds.
Other ways of managing your spend
There may be other ways of keeping your spend on track, such as choosing an internet plan without excess charges (which means that your speed is shaped/slowed down once you used up your
included data allowance) or monitoring your spend by contacting us to discuss your usage.
Examples of our spend management tools include:
Speed reduction for broadband services where speed is reduced to 72 kbps once the monthly allowance is reached
- Speed reduction for DSL services where the data allowance is reached
- The option of changing your plan
- For VOIP calls, we offer call barring
- Contacting us on 1300 110 393 to discuss your usage
Please contact us on 1300 110 393 or by e-mail at [email protected] for more information on managing your spend.
