Spending cap

Tuning in


I am wanting to confirm the rules around data usage and spending cap

I have 10gb of data usage on my sim only pay monthly plan

The page on data usage says that if I exceed my data usage I will be charged £3 per day per 1gb data used above my tariff amount

Does the spending cap come into effect in this has been set and if reached I would in essence lose mobile data access until the start of my next month's allowance

The faq and help pages on spending cap on the website talk about calls and texts to premium services but don't explicitly mention data usage as well. Unless I've missed it

Any help greatly appreciated
