Tips to reduce charges

  • Complete large downloads during free off-peak hours (all weekend and Monday to Friday from 5:00pm to 8:00am)
  • Be aware of usage that accrues when you connect via the Griffith VPN. Connecting via VPNmakes your computer look like it is on the Griffith University network, which means you also need to connect to the Internet Access system. Find out more about remote access and VPN.
  • Be aware of software that will automatically download or synchronise when you connect to the internet. This includes peer-to-peer services, bit torrent services or drop-box services*.

* When accessing these types of services, you must ensure they are used in accordance with the University's Information Technology Code of Practice. This Code of Practice applies irrespective of where the University information technology resources are accessed and used, and includes use at home.
