Qb rip-off;Shocking revelation,volume usage show twice of what I used


#1

I've just started using Qubee for a month now, but I've been using Wimax for a year from a different service provider. Several times my account was blocked due to usage exceeding the limit in 3 days. I was surprised by the usage volume showed on my account as the content I'd browse are mostly forum. After this I decided to download 1 mb, disconnected and then again checked my usage which was shockingly 2 mb. Also as I keep my device switched on for sometime, with time the data showed more than 50 mb although I had'nt surf anything for that amount of time. Please help

Firstly bro, what I use is that I installed DU METER, it is software that keeps track of what I download and upload. It tells you daily bandwidth usage and I always check to see if it is consistent with Qubee bill. SO far it is consistent and Qubee people are not ripping me off.

Please do realize that there can be software updates running in the background, or if your on a network than that doubles the bandwidth usage in most cases. Last time, I checked nod32 was consuming at least 50-100mb everyday which was consuming at least 1-2gb bandwidth every month.

If you use torrents you will also be using upload bandwidth. So that will also be counted in addition to your download bandwidth.

Well I've never downloaded torrents, I just do normal surfing on sites taking kbs not mbs like google .com, as search engine.

Everytime I load any webpage of under 100 kb the usage is showing over 1 mb, it is become truly frustrating as I never had any issues with my previous server provider. Its been 3 times that my account got closed due to "excess usage" and had to go to nearby franchise to get it opened, the surfing that I did has gone down even worst than dialup, as anytime I load a webpage of any size under 100kb, the QB usage shows over 1 mb, this is clearly harassment of a huge scale. 3 webpages all of 100 kb were posted as 3 mb on my account usage.

Well DU meter results goes like this.

Usage per DU meter: 17 mb[total received+sent]

Usage detail on Qubee:25 mb

I have a discover 12[gb] package, which is just Rs.150 more than 6 gb package.

Are we getting actual 6-8 gb package, as they are inflating are usage too??

WAteen had a customer service problem but I never paid a visit on their franchise, their prepaid cards were readily available and most of all, I never got troubled by these usage thefts. Whatever my usage was it was accurate, unlike Qubee not rounded to 1 mb even if I used 100 kb.

Why not just switch providers if Qubee is being such a pain?

Well I’m thinking about it now. The billing of Qubee is also shady, the franchise refused to provide any help and when I asked about its detail they told me to go home and contact helpline for billing issues. My previous account with another ISP has been locked so I’m in a Catch-22 situation. I’d wished if someone could help me on this volume usage issue and clarify if Qubee have inflated their actual 8 gb package to 12 gb, inform us about their terms and conditions as in every session whatever my usage I’d be charged 1.5 times more than that.
