Maxis : How To Check Data Usage

Here’s a nice tip, this is how you can check how much you have exhausted off your monthly data usage from your monthly Maxis data package. Im on a 500MB plan which is sufficient for me as I’m on wifi when at home where I do my updates and other data hungry activities.

Using this method, you can ensure that you keep your data usage in check. If you don’t know already, it cost a bomb when you pass your monthly data cap so its good to check to ensure you don’t fall under that bracket.

Its pretty important for you to pay attention to your data usage on a monthly basis. I recommend you check your data usage at least once a month, 1 week before your billing cycle to see if you are in the green or in the red. Over shooting your allocation is very expensive and if you find your self close or over shooting the allocation, its a better idea to go once bracket higher. Trust me, it saves you money!
