cable usage tracking

Hi,

Just wondering if Start offers tools for usage tracking for cable customers (specifically in Rogers territory).

Furthermore, how much does overage cost?

$0.50/GB overage fees

They have a tracker, but it doesn't work in "Red" territory yet. But, from the tracker page:

Usage statistics for your cable connection are not currently integrated into this web tool. Overage charges will not apply for you until after this tool has been completed and available for review.

is Rogers in red territory? Regardless it doesn't really matter it seems since if the tracker doesn't work they won't bill extra (just dind't want to find myself in any surprises with billing and not being able to track it).

thanks.

Yep. Start just isn't allowed to refer to Rogers directly, so they refer to it as "Red areas" and the term has kind of spread to others posting here.

agreed..! as long as I won't get an overage bill without advance notice that the tracker is active and that I should be checking my usage on a regular basis.
