A word of caution to anyone who end up having to use Always on!

NEVER EVER do a speed test. If the site you are connecting to uses fiber, it may cost you more than 600MB in about a minute for a single speed test.

I found this out the hard way and when I contacted AlwaysOn. They responded saying tough luck, it is legitimate usage.

Personally I would argue that you should zero rate speedtest.net ESPECIALLY if you embed the function in your mobile app.

But what do I know, I am just a customer.

Did one speed test on their Wi-Fi hotspot at Oliver Tambo and got the message that the free access portion has been depleted.
