If a customer has a data bolt-on, will his data consumption use the base monthly plan allowance or the bolt-on allowance?

The 7 days bolt-on allowance takes priority over the base monthly plan allowance. So if a customer has a 100MB of bolt-on and 500MB of base plan, the allowance of the bolt-on will be used first, and when exhausted the base plan allowance will start to be used

When can a customer migrate to a higher data allowance?
