Did you know you can choose to receive an email when you are close to your monthly data usage allowance? If you have one of our Business Internet packages with limited bandwidth allowance, we recommend monitoring your consumption. Downloading and uploading data both contribute to your overall usage. Once you exceed your allowance, you will be billed at $10 per 50 GB over (up to $30 for 100+ GB in excess), so here’s some helpful tips.
Sign up for email notifications
Choose to receive an email when you reach 70%, 90%, or 100% (or all three) of your total available bandwidth. You can sign up for these alerts today on the website, by selecting My Account from the main menu, and then Internet Usage. You’ll need your BendBroadband email address and password to register.
Check your monthly bandwidth consumption
You can also monitor your data usage on our website for real time information, whenever you like. You’ll find the following usage report by again accessing My Account, and selecting Internet Usage.
(Note: Usage data is compiled and reported once a day between 4-6 a.m. Notifications are based on this data and are sent once per day at 7 a.m. Usage is calculated from the first day of the month until the last, regardless of your billing cycle.)
If your business is expanding (as many are in Central Oregon), and you are finding that you are exceeding your data usage allowance, you may be interested in one of our three Limitless Internet packages for businesses. With a choice of speeds from 25 Mbps to 100 Mbps, all offer limitless data usage. With that comes peace of mind with no usage restrictions or extra fees.
