Need an understanding of how to read data usage on here , I am at 6811mb and a gig is 1024mb so once it hits 10000 that's a gig on Kodoo than the way they have it ?

Once you hit 10,000mb, that is equal to 9gb and 784mb
10000 / 1024 = 9.77
9x1024=9216
10000-9216 = 784


6811mb is 6gb and 667mb

Chris, You may be getting confused between Mb (megabit) and MB (megabyte).
1Mb = 0.125MB
1024MB = 1GB
8192Mb = 1GB

Case on letters is important when talking about this sort of thing.

I know the difference but I am checking the self serve on data shows 6000 and when i click on data shows 300mb so really I am at a total of 300mb ?

So both show MB I take it the larger number is mb, if correct they might wanna make that minor adjustment or even better spell it out as people don't know

You are correct. It shows on the one page you have used 0 out of 6144MB. On the other page it shows 301.40MB have been used.

When things update or in the future it should say 301.40/6144MB used.

Is this a new account? If so, Koodo offers about 10 days of unmetered data to allow you to determine if the package of data you purchased is sufficient.

Don't forget that they encourage (only encourage, not enforce ;)) "to use this option in a reasonable manner."
