How do I sign up?

Monitoring Spend

There is an Online Billing Portal for all our FleetOne customers to use. This feature enables the user to track their usage and spend limits on a regular basis, to avoid bill shock at the end of the month!

teleport-proxy - Web Compression

MailASail have developed their own web-compressing Proxy to help customers streamline their connection and cut data usage by up to 1/5!

Once installed, the teleport-proxy works quietly in the background to cut out all those extra adverts and heavily loaded graphics, so that you can load up web pages much faster and see a much lower bill at the end of the month!


FleetOne Data Charging

Data usage is billed in the following way:

  • A Call Record (CDR) is generated:
    • Every 12 hours since the Data Session is started
    • When the Data Session is terminated
  • Each Call Record will show the number of Bytes of data used, both inbound and outbound. A minimum of 50KB will be charged for both In and Outbound directions (ie there is at least a 100KB minimum charge for each call record)
  • The Data Session will terminate after 12 hours idle time with no data being transferred (eg computer completely unplugged). Be aware that the computers' background activity (when plugged in) will normally be sufficient to keep the connection alive and prevent the connection disconnecting, and only physically unplugging the data cable will enable it to register as completely idle.

The implications are that for most users the following process will be the most efficient way to use the FleetOne:

  • Start a data session manually when you are ready to use the internet (eg via the handset, select "BGAN", then "Standard Session", then Connect)
  • Use the internet
  • Disconnect the cable from the computer when the internet is not intentionally in use (this will help prevent any accidental charges being incurred due to background programs "updating" themselves)
  • Leave the FleetOne powered on and don't disconnect the data session if you expect that you might use the internet within 12 hours (the session should time out automatically if in fact you don't use it)

This process will usually minimise the number of Data Sessions appearing on your bill, and hence minimise the number of "minimum charges" incurred
