1. EXCESSIVE USE OF BANDWIDTH
The Company does not place a cap on a customer's bandwidth use, or charge customers for the amount of bandwidth used, but reserves the right to take measures to address any customer's excessive use of bandwidth, which can negatively impact the Company's Internet or its users. Bandwidth usage is the amount of data sent and received through your Internet connection. Bandwidth use is considered to be excessive when it significantly exceeds the usage characteristic of a typical residential user of the Service. This will be determined by the Company in its sole discretion. If the customer anticipates usage in excess of the typical residential user, the customer should inquire about the availability of dedicated service or other service options. If a customer's use is deemed to be excessive, the Company will make every effort to contact the customer and review the matter. However, where the Company, in its sole discretion, determines that the usage potentially impacts the Company's ability to provide its Internet Services or that its network resources need to be protected, it reserves the right to suspend or terminate service in response to a customer's excessive bandwidth use, without notice to the customer.
The Company reserves the right to monitor bandwidth, usage, transmissions, and content in order to identify violations of this Policy, protect the network and its users, manage the network and otherwise operate the service.
