What is a "day"? - A calendar day or 24 hours?

On PAYG, you can have up to 20MB a "day" for 20p but is that a calendar day or 24 hours from the start of data usage?

 

For example. If you use 8Mb between 23:00 and 23:30 and then 8Mb between 00:30 and 01:00 does that get billed as 20p because it's within 24 hours or as 40p because it's two calendar days?

 

Example 2. If you use 19Mb between 22:00 and 23:00 and 11Mb between 01:00 and 02:00 does that get billed as 40p because it's two different calendar days or as £2.20 because it's 30Mb in one period of 24 hours and costs 20p for the first 20Mb and £2 for the extra 10Mb?

Interesting question. I always believed a 'day' was midnight to midnight i.e. a 24 hour period or calendar day as you describe it.

 

I'm not sure how thw data counters would work if a 'data day' spanned two actual days.

So total confusion then, with about 50% saying it starts at midnight and about 50% saying it's a 24 hour period (and one person saying both!)

 

I'll ask an agent.
