Bandwidth/internet usage is showing incorrectly on my account

Grasshopper

I logged into my account, went to the internet usage and for some reason it shows two months at a time (August 1st to October 24th) and it says I've used 995/500GB. What's going on? Why would it be showing two months when it still has the monthly limit?

In any case I definitely haven't used a terabyte in one single month, so something isn't right. Is anyone else's account showing two months?

I log into the service so I can get accurate information (since Windows and my bandwidth programs don't always agree with Shaw). So I gotta sort this out so I don't get charged for going over the limit or something.

@star099 apologies for the confusion. Looks like it has lumped the data for two months together. You are allotted 500 GB per month, so within the two months using 995 GB, you are fine. We don't generally charge for bandwidth overages as it's based on fair use of your data allotment. We would recommend upgrading to an unlimited plan so you won't need to worry.

Would be nice if I had an unlimited plan, I wouldn't need to worry about logging in to check. But I'm on the 500gb one, so I'm stuck keeping an eye on my usage.

Thank you for your reply. I guess I can worry a bit less, but just log in more to keep a closer eye on it. It's just kinda frustrating when Windows says I used 300GB and then it turns out it was a lot more. Oh well.

I have the same problem. Now lumping 3 months together. Something is wrong with Shaw not breaking individual months since August 1.

@Mistic869 if you recently made an upgrade, it may take up to one billing cycle for that to update. You should be fine to ignore it 🙂
