This month things are running much as usual, except that a few minutes ago I received this automated email:
You have now used 283 additional block[s] of usage, on your TelstraClear HighSpeed Internet plan for the period to 24/05/2007.
Additional usage blocks are charged at $2.95 per block of 1,024 megabytes, regardless of the number of megabytes you use from that block.
We will endeavour to send you another reminder email if you use additional usage blocks.
That’s a bill for $835! After checking with my partner I called the helpdesk, where I finally was put through to an automated message advising that I’m not the only one. Thank goodness!
