Apple Music using data allowance

Why is Apple Music being metered when I am only streaming? 


the streaming of the Music will be data free via the Apple Music service when connected to the Mobile network on a Pre-Paid offer. 


Data charges apply for downloading the app and Non-music streaming use such as downloads, video streaming and social interaction.

Hi @Milo6


Appreciate the concern with your Apple Music data. It should not be metered while directly connected to the Telstra mobile network.
