Data Boosts provide an additional UK/EU data allowance so that you can enjoy even more data at a discounted price.
Adding a Data Boost before your inclusive data allowance has been used up will mean that the Spending Limit configured in the background will behave in the same way towards your additional allowance as it would to your inclusive allowance i.e. it will not trigger any restriction until the additional allowance has been used up.
Once your Limit has been reached and any bar applied, a Captive Page will be sent, through which an additional Data Boost or Boosts can be applied. Applying a Data Boost via a Captive Page reconfigures your Spending Limit and the usage / barring cycle recommences. An adjustment to your Spending Limit is not required.
If for any reason after a Cap has been triggered and a Data Boost is added by means other than a Captive Page, your Spending Limit will have to be reconfigured, manually.
To configure a Spending Control*, from the dashboard of your my.plan account, go to:
CONTROLS > SPEND CONTROLS> DATA LIMITS > UK/EU DATA > [select user] > SET UP
To reconfigure an ‘Ofcom’ Total Spending Cap, go to:
CONTROLS > SPEND CONTROLS> OFCOM TOTAL SPEND CAP > [select user] > SET UP
