Install updates using mobile data

If you are using UCT-provided mobile data, you may be concerned about the size of the update depleting your existing bundle. Please note that the UCT mobile data contracts include night time data for the month. This ranges from 20GB to 80GB depending on your department. 

The night time data is separate from the anytime allocation (which is typically used in the daytime), and it becomes active between midnight and 5:59 a.m. daily.

So, to avoid cutting into the normal daytime UCT data allocation, we advise that those using data please run the update overnight.

To do so, simply start the process (i.e. connect to VPN) at midnight, and then let the update run during those hours up until 5:59 a.m.

Following this advice will reduce the need for requesting additional data top-ups. 

For those using their own WiFi, you may, of course run, the update at any time.
