How to clear your Cache

Your internet browser’s cache temporarily stores parts of websites (scripts, images etc.) while you are browsing, so that the information will load more quickly the next time you visit.

Occasionally your cache can prevent you from seeing updated information or cause errors (for example logging in to your Customer Zone or viewing your data usage) when the stored content conflicts with live content.

Most of the time this is resolved by simply clearing your cache.
