Acceptable Use Thresholds

To protect our networks and services, and ensure all customers are provided with a fair amount of access to the Internet over our network, COMPANIES has in place Acceptable Use Thresholds for each Internet Service Package available. The purpose of this threshold is to provide equitable delivery of upload and download speeds to all COMPANIES customers.

If your total usage reaches 80% or more of the Acceptable Use Threshold, we will attempt to notify you by e-mail. If at any time, within one month, your usage exceeds the Acceptable Use Threshold (exceeding 100%), your service may be subject to slower throughput speeds. Your service will be restored on the first day of your next billing cycle, when the threshold resets back to zero. You may also restore service by purchasing additional usage by logging into your individual account or by contacting our office. You may log into your individual account through our customer portal found right on our website.

Postings must be limited to those that are related to the topic of the newsgroup, as described in the newsgroup materials. You are also prohibited from sending “mass e-mails” (e-mails sent to 10 or more people), if such a mass e-mail would be reasonably expected to provoke complaints from the recipients.

Unless otherwise expressly provided herein, COMPANIES’ rights and remedies under the Policy are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies that COMPANIES may otherwise have at law or in equity or under any other agreement. A waiver by COMPANIES of any violation of this Policy on any occasion shall not act as a waiver of any subsequent violation, nor shall it be deemed to be a waiver of the underlying obligation or term, and no failure or delay by COMPANIES in exercising any right or remedy hereunder will operate as a waiver thereof, nor will any single or partial exercise of any right or remedy preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or remedy. COMPANIES has the right but not the obligation to monitor or restrict any uses of the Service that COMPANIES believes in its sole discretion violates this Policy, any part of the Terms and Conditions, or any applicable law.
