Telkom First Bill / Pro rata

Telkom LTE Pro-Rated Data Allocation - Explained

Pro-rated data allocation refers to fair data distribution relating to the day of the month your Telkom Capped LTE package was activated.

For Example:
If your 240GB LTE package was activated on the 1st day of a new month, your gigabytes will be divided by the number of days in the month. 240GB / 30 days = 8GB per day.
If, however, your LTE package is activated on the 15th of the month, you will still receive 8GB per day for the remainder of the month, but understandably not the full 240GB.
This means you won't have the full amount of data available until your next bill date.
