What is Pro-rata?


Pro rata simply means that you’re paying only for a certain part of a billing period.

The prorata is calculated by dividing the number of days left in the month by the total number of days in that month. As an example, if you were to open an account on the 15th of May, you would divide 15 by 31, which would give you (after rounding up), approximately 0.48 (or 48% of the month). This applies only for the days LEFT in the month (in the case of VIF Internet), since we do not close an account in the middle of the month, but only at the end of one.
