As BGAN terminals are capable of transmitting or receiving high levels of data which can therefore result in unexpected charges, we always recommend to make sure you are aware of how much data you are using. We cannot be held responsible for unexpected usage on the rental unit.


As a standard process, we receive usage alerts each time 10 MB of data are used on the terminal which you will also be alerted to.  If you would like to implement an auto suspend when a certain amount of MB has been used, then please make us aware of this upon booking the rental.
