Managing mobile internet device data usage

If you exceed the data usage in your plan, additional data usage fees will apply.

To help you control your costs, your Mobile Internet data will be blocked if you reach $50 in additional charges. A pop-up notification will appear in the web browser of your connected device (e.g., laptop, tablet). To continue your usage, simply accept the charges in the pop-up notification. Otherwise, the data block will be lifted automatically at the beginning of your next billing cycle.

Tips for limiting usage and avoiding excess charges:

  • Close your web browser, and other programs or apps that access the Internet, when not in use.
  • Password-protect your Wi-Fi network (if applicable) to prevent unauthorized use.
  • Upgrade your rate plan to increase your data allowance.
