Can someone clarify how data charges are calculated for usage less than 1MiB/day? I can't find it anywhere.

For pay as you go, it's less than 20p for less than 1mb.

It's 20p/MB up to 1MB, i.e. 0.02p/kB

That's not exactly a clarification.

 That's not less than 1MiB.

 Thanks - is this definitely correct? Do you have a link to the announcement? So we can get 50KiB for 1p?

The announcement simply said it was 20p/MB but charged per kB

http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Blog/Data-pricing-update/ba-p/429379

 

So depending on the definition of a MB it is either 20p/1024 or 20p/1000 per kB i.e. 0.0195p or 0.02p per kB

Perfect. Thanks very much. I wish it was 5MiB or 10MiB not 1MiB but at least there's an option for very low users.
