    14. Fair and Acceptable Usage Policy

    To ensure the quality and availability of our internet services Easyweb has implemented several systems to ensure fair usage on all uncapped Internet products. Easyweb makes use of bandwidth shaping and / or throttling to slow down Internet speeds where a customer’s behaviour is determined to be excessive or is affecting the user experience of other customers on Easyweb’s network.

    Customer behaviour which may cause an internet service to be shaped or throttled includes using bandwidth intensive protocols such as peer-to-peer, network news transfer, or performing unattended downloads of large files.

    During peak network traffic times Easyweb may also block bandwidth intensive protocols such as peer-to-peer or network news transfer to ensure the user experience of other customers on Easyweb’s network is not effected. In the event of such customer behaviour being detected, Easyweb reserves the right to suspend the account of a customer whose usage is continuously affecting Easyweb’s network.It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure they have the appropriate package for their type of use.

    A Line speed that is supplied to client’s premises is for the entire network, not per an individual user within the client’s premises. Example: If you take a 10 Meg line for a premises that has 4 users. You get 10 Megs for all 4 users, not 10 Megs per each user.

    HOME CONNECTION

    Home Uncapped services are best suited for average home users who make little to no use of high bandwidth services such as NNTP, Peer-to-Peer and Torrents (and similar but not limited to). Home Uncapped services are proactively managed by the Easyweb Protocol Manager. Home Uncapped services are managed according to the last 7 days usage projected to 30 days as well as the available capacity on the network at all times.

    There are predefined thresholds set and when exceeded the account speed will be managed down to a maximum of 50% of the account speed. Should the demand on the network exceed available capacity these thresholds may be managed more aggressively by the Easyweb Protocol Manager and differ to the table below.

    The thresholds per account speed are:

    SERVICE DOWNLOAD SPEED UPLOAD SPEED FAIR USAGE
    4 Mbps Up to 4 Mbps Up to 1 Mbps 80 Gig
    8 Mbps Up to 8 Mbps Up to 2 Mbps 100 Gig

    40 Mbps Up to 40 Mbps Up to 10 Mbps 400 Gig
    100 Mbps Up to 100 Mbps Up to 25 Mbps 800 Gig

    PREMIUM CONNECTION

    Premium Uncapped services are better suited to more advanced users, and are managed proactively by the Easyweb Protocol Manager. The Easyweb Protocol Manager is used to provide all uncapped users on our network with the best possible internet experience. During peak network times, we give priority to real time services (such as browsing, email, streaming etc), high bandwidth services such as NNTP, Peer-to-Peer and Torrents (and similar but not limited to) will receive less priority.

    Clients deemed to be continuously uploading/downloading or using the service for unattended automated processes will be managed by the Easyweb Protocol Manager. The Easyweb Protocol Manager may be used to manage clients by rate limiting (slowing down speed) and limiting or preventing service using specific protocols or ports.

    We reserve the right to use the Easyweb Protocol Manager to manage the integrity of our network should network capacity not be available at any time, we assure our clients that we will do this in a responsible manner should the need arise. Any user that is found attempting to bypass or circumvent the Easyweb Protocol Manager will be suspended and could have their service cancelled.

    BUSINESS CONNECTION

    This is an uncapped service that is prioritised for Business Users based on available network capacity where high priority is required for typical business protocols. Business protocols such as VOIP, Terminal Services, Web Browsing and Email are unshaped. Clients deemed to be continuously uploading/downloading or using the service for unattended automated processes or non-typical business protocols (such as but not limited to NNTP, Peer-to-Peer, Https Downloading and Torrents) will be managed by the Easyweb Protocol Manager.

    The Easyweb Protocol Manager may be used to manage clients by rate limiting (slowing down speed) and limiting or preventing service using specific protocols or ports. Easyweb reserves the right, to at its discretion manage non typical business protocols such as but not limited to NNTP, Peer-to-Peer, Https Downloading and Torrents and/or rate limit service speed.

    We reserve the right to use the Easyweb Protocol Manager to manage services in order to protect the integrity of our network according to the available network capacity, we assure our clients that we will do this in a responsible manner should the need arise. Any user that is found attempting to bypass or circumvent the Easyweb Protocol Manager will be suspended and could have their service cancelled.

    This is determined by the number of customers that share the usable bandwidth on the departure point of the network.
    1:1 enables the user to use the exact bandwidth required.
    1:10 means that 1 Meg is shared between 10 users.
    This means that you will get a usable service as it is very seldom that all users will be sending packet data at exactly the same time. One should remember that internet stands idle for 95% of the time, while you read the web page you have just downloaded.
