Prepaid mobile internet usage

Hi all,
Just querying the usage of data on my prepaid plan. What is the 'oz data off peak' that comes up on 'internet browsing' under my usage?

Also i suspect my data is being reported wrong, it states i visited youtube about ten times today across different times but i only opened it once today (yes i closed the app afterwards).

Im getting all this info from the 'my optus' app.

Re: Prepaid mobile internet usage

Hi stevans, on our older Prepaid rateplans some data partions were classified as peak and off-peak and different allowances were included as part of a recharge.

Do you know what rate plan you're on?

 

Best to check your YouTube settings and apps for any auto-updates or push data as this would contribute to constant data traffic.

 

If you're concerend about the amount of data you're using have a look at our new plans here. They include generous data & call allowances :smileyhappy:

Did You Know?

You can SMS ‘menu’ to 9999 to find out your account balance, due date, notify us of a recent payment, request a payment extension + lots more! There’s lots of options for Pre-Paid customers too ;) It’s super easy to use
