So this month I recieve a massive bill from MTNL apparently I have downloaded a huge amount in august... I have the night unlimited plan and only now found out about this modem restart thing, which is the dumbest thing I've ever heard of... They should be implementing checks at their end to make sure all downloads between 12-8 are free and not make you restart your modem... But regardless the bloody usage summary is clearly wrong, because it sometimes show 2 or more different values for any given session... Brilliant little scam they have going on here...

Wow... This MTNL usage monitor is amazing... truly... its not even 8:57 in the morning as you can tell by the time of the forum post and the clocks in the screenshot... And here the fabulous MTNL system has decided that that is when the session should end... Conveniently right after their specified 12-8am period... Now it is impossible with the little program that I wrote for the restart to happen later 7:50... So clearly MTNL is tampering with this so that people get charged for their downloads... Pathetic...

I dont see anything wrong with that. :unsure: MTNL is showing the session ended at 2nd October (00:08:57), maybe u disconnected at 00:08:57 and the forum time is 2nd October 03:00:26 which is a later time, so whats wrong??? Night usage is not charged from 12am onwards or maybe from 00:08:57 onwards....Am I missing something???? :blink:
