Is it just me or does Telstra have some secret way of ensuring Data gets chewed up faster than with other providers and then commence charging $10 and $10 and $10... until you just wish you hadn't signed a contract with them and start warning everyone you speak with.
I changed my mobile to Telstra about 6 months ago and am on a 12Gb plan, which I thought was ample for my usage... always had been
I don't use my phone for gaming and only watch the occassional 3 minute video and download a few pics.. read news... a few whats app conversations a month
But they've managed to charge me for an extra 18Gb over 15 days
Unlike Amaysim,who I now wish I'd stayed with, Telstra's site doesn't seem to allow me to monitor my usage
Am I wrong? If there is a way to monitor my usage (and more to the point monitor Telsra!) and clear up this problem can someone please direct me to it? Thanks

They all do this $10 per GB thing. It's a price fixed cabal that the ACCC won't act on, because it is good at making excuses.
Mobile can chew up your data, because the device has to re-send if there are any errors. If you have poor reception, it will cost more.
You can indeed monitor your usage.
You can view your usage at http://tel.st/myacc on any device or
You can view your usage via the 24x7 App on iOS and Android devices
If you have an android device compatible you can also get a dashboard widget which shows your usage.
