Internet packages have fixed monthly usage allowance and vary by region. Internet usage is the amount of data your computer sends and receives from the Internet. You can use the Usage estimator online tool on the Northwestel website to help you estimate your usage.
If you exceed your monthly usage limit, over usage charges are applied based on the Internet package you are subscribed to. You can use your account number and pin to monitor your internet usage online at the Northwestel website. This will help you control your usage and avoid incurring over usage charges.
