You’ve been busy!

You’ve gone over your monthly data cap by at least 6GB (including boosters), so we have throttled your internet service. Throttling means we have slowed your internet right down to dial up speeds and there’s good reason for it!

Our Satellite overage rate is $0.03 per MB, so 6GB equates to $184.32 in overage charges. You can get around paying this fee by buying a data booster to cover the extra data you have used.

You’ll need to make sure you purchase the right data booster to cover your existing overage charges as well as ensuring the booster will cover any additional data you might need from now until the end of your usage period.

Throttling is only temporary, we throttle you because we don’t want to bill you too much in overage charges. Your speeds will go back to normal when you add a booster or from the 21st of the month.
