Measuring Infinity 1 bandwidth usage


[link to this post]
 
Asking on behalf of a relation. On Infinity 1 Unlimited do BT provide a way of measuring bandwidth usage?

Relation wondering as he could perhaps change to 40GB / month variant.

The usage can be seen on internal systems but not by customers. So speaking to anyone in billing or retentions can tell you the usage over the past year.

I wonder why that might be... as if I couldn't guess. Can't have the customer knowing his usage, too much information wink

Given the pricing difference is £7/month at standard pricing, might be better to try and strike a deal on price for another 12 months

You used to be able to see it if you went to https://www.bt.com/appsyouraccount/usage/viewYourBro...

But I see they have changed it to "You're on unlimited!"

Shame... as I've found it very useful.

Yeah, I'm sure the cost savings BT made on removing the usage counter for unlimited customers were huge.

Not. :-/

On a related note, my relative uses under 25GB, so the £10 fibre package on Sky is a no-brainer considering it's Market A with no LLU.

I've now found that he looked at his router stats and that reports he's used 113GB in 5 days...

Methinks a 40GB limit might be a tad low!

Unlimited is usually a no brainer, as is striking a deal. I got through 110GB in a similar tem frame and i consider myself a light user lol. It's the Sky on demand stuff .... lol

It's possible that someone within wifi range is using BT FON to download lots of data...
