Peak & Off-Peak Times

Many of Westnet's Broadband internet plans have a monthly download allowance that is separated between Peak and Off-Peak times. For plans where this is not the case, you have one total download allowance for the entire calendar month.

Please find below the Peak and Off-Peak times, based on your account type:

Mobile Broadband Plans

Mobile Broadband  Peak time is 7:00AM - 12:00AM EST and Off-Peak time is 12:00AM - 7:00AM EST. Please remember that these times are listed in Eastern Standard Time - you may wish to use a time converter such as The World Clock to convert to EST. WorldTimeZone.com also provides a useful map for doing so.

Remember, if you have pre-paid Mobile Broadband, or you have a post-paid plan and it is the only Westnet product you use, your quota is not split into peak and offpeak, and you do not need to worry about this.
