Mobile phone data usage with Telstra

I hadn’t really been keeping track of my phone’s data usage this month, and then downloaded a bunch of magazines like Edge for example (which is $15 for a printed copy in the AU [which you get 3 months after it went to press], or $4 for a digital version via 12 month subscription you can get on the same day it’s published – digital, plz!) – and then this happened:


I was so, so expecting Telstra to call 1GB “1,000,000,000 bytes” like hard drive manufacturers manage to get away with and charge me for going over my limit – but no, 1GB is (rightly) 1024MB – and that, as Robert Frost might say, has made all the difference ;-)

Good job, Telstra – it’s appreciated.
