People are tired of getting charged $5 for using insignificant amounts of data. I myself have had the problem of getting charged $5 for around 200kb/month of accidental data usage after trying to send picture messages, which requires data to be turned on, which may result in background apps like "Google services" using it, which you can not easily disable. Reasons for accidental data may include: - Sending a picture message - Accidentally, temporarily turning on the option - Buying a phone with the data on These are just the ways that it happened to me, and other people I know Lets have a look at the numbers for my current case. I used 200kb of accidental data. That's enough to send/receive only 8% of an average photo. Getting charged $5 for downloading what's equivalent to 8% of a picture, throughout a whole month is unfair. Here's some math to show how this charge compares to Koodo's real overage rate. Their overage rate is $5/250MB I paid 5$/200KB I paid 2.5 cents/KB, overage rate is 0.00195 cents/KB I paid [b]1280 times more for my extra usage above what I intended, compared to what Koodo's actual overage rate is.
