Why have I been charged £1.98 ?

I'm on the basic 200 tariff with none of the additional services active. I've gone over the 200mb but it should just disconnect when it has been used up. FreedomPop isn't have PAYG rates so what what that for? Think I'll deactive my account soon I don't trust this network at all it's set up to catch you out with hidden charges.

    PAYG = 1.5p/MB I think.

    If there's PAYG rates where are they?

    @masterluke the rates are in
    "Service Plan, Equipment and Payment Terms" document:

    You can turn off automatic top-up in your account settings, this ensures you will not be charged if you run out of data.

    This happened to me. FP cannot track your data usage in real time, they are a few hours behind. Once they know you've gone past the 200mb limit, then they'll disconnect you, but by that time you would have used more than 200mb, so then they bill you for that overage (1.5p/mb as stated by others).
    This has nothing to do with the auto-top-up feature.

    Unfortunately my next month didnt start properly after paying and I had to phone them to reset my account.

    No. Automatic topup is already off.
