So I noticed on the telkom portal that my usage for monday is 33gb.
1. I did not download this much
2. It's quite literally impossible
For my 4mbps line to use that much it needs to download at full speed for 19 hours and 40 minutes straight
Problem being that there are only 17 hours in one day before night surfer kicks in. My usage for friday was also 20gb, and again, did not use that much
I noticed my data usage last month being unusually high as well
Is telkom screwing me over?

Monitor your router, compare that to what Telkom show, then you know.

I'm seeing this too on a friend's account:
Portal: 250 Gb
SAIX: 166 Gb

They're fupped and they're pissed...:mad:
