My 34 pages of cellphone bill

Orange Bill

Got my cellphone bill today and had quite some fun which I like to share with you. They send me a bill of 34 pages, it’s a good thing I receive it electronically, save some trees! 

As you might know I have developed GG-Tracker. This application sends my current physical position every so many seconds to my server. The internet packages involved here are very small, all information is transmitted in the header and the message itself is only three characters, in total <200 bytes.

In  March I seem to have send 1324 of these packages and Orange (my cellphone provider) writes a line on the invoice for every connection (<200 bytes) that GG-Tracker makes. The result is a 34 page bill…perhaps their invoice application needs some redesigning?
