Capped Contracts Guide

For many of us, when we get our mobile bill each month, we are hit with some unexpected fees. This usually takes the form of an overage fee, and they can be very expensive. Overage fees occur when you go over your data limit for that month. Mobile phone bills are expensive enough without having to pay extra fees on top of it. If you are tired of paying overage fees, there is one drastic option you can take – getting a capped contract.

With a capped contract your data plan shuts off once you reach your limit. This will prevent you from getting charged an overage fee, but you will also not have a data plan to use for the rest of the month. A capped contract is great for people who have a hard time keeping track of their data usage, or for parents who want to keep their kids' data use under control. Not every mobile company offers capped contracts, so if you are interested in getting one, you will need to speak to your mobile company and see what they offer. While having your data plan shut off once you reach your limit may seem like overkill, it can really save you a lot of money if you are consistently hit with overage fees.
