Fair Usage Policy

What is Fair Use Policy
We want our customers to enjoy surfing the internet and our Fair Use Policy is there to make sure our customers have the best experience possible. There might be some customers who use so much data that it might adversely affect the network quality & deteriorate surfing experience for majority of our users.
So to make sure everything is running smoothly, we continuously monitor data transfer volume of internet usage of our subscribers each month and dynamically calculate the average usage of all subscribers to set the levels of Fair Usage Policy.

Why do we have a Fair Use Policy?
At peak times, a lot of customers use the shared network bandwidth at any one time.
A very small number of our customers use internet service inappropriately, for example when sending or downloading very large files, or using 'peer to peer' and file sharing software (which may be sending and receiving video and other large files constantly). This means that service quality for all users is affected, making it slower for everyone to access the internet or send and receive emails, especially at peak times. The vast majority of our customers use their service considerately and their usage levels during peak hours don't affect the shared network capacity. Even though only a very small number of our customers use the service inappropriately, their activity does greatly affect the service. Our Fair Use Policy manages inappropriate use and makes sure the service can be used fairly by everyone.

How does the Fair Use Policy work?
Under the policy we have defined fair usage levels for unlimited data transfer plans and needless to mention, the usage levels are set way above normal usage such that most customers will not be affected by the Fair Usage Policy.
On reaching 4 times the daily fair usage level, the plan speed would be rationalized (reduced from the normal speed of the plan) for the rest of day. The speeds would be upgraded to the normal speeds after midnight.
On reaching 4 times the monthly fair usage level, the plan speed would be rationalized for the rest of the month. The speeds would be upgraded to the normal speeds once the validity of recharge expires. Fair usage level and the reduced speed are dynamically calculated by the average daily and monthly usage of the plan subscribers.

How do I know if the Fair Use Policy affects me?
Only very few of our customers are considered Heavy Users, so it will only affects you if you're one of the very few customers who make inappropriate use of our service If you don't use peer to peer, file sharing or other inappropriate software and you're not, for example, constantly downloading or uploading: videos or very large files or sharing your connection with neighbors, you're unlikely to be affected by our Fair Use Policy.

What's the impact of Fair Usage Policy on data transfer limits?
Post consuming a certain amount of GB/MB on the plan you have, the speeds will be rationalized.
The level of usage after which the speed would be rationalized varies from plan to plan.
The speed of the network also varies depending on the availability of the network during that time and the number of connected subscribers at that time.

Our Rights
We reserve the right to vary the terms of the Fair Use Policy from time to time without prior notice.
If, post reaching the levels of usage mentioned against your plan in the FUP policy, your excessive or unreasonable use continues, TerraNet without further notice to you reserves the right to Suspend or limit the Service (or any feature of it) for any period We think is reasonably necessary and/or Terminate your subscription in accordance with the relevant Part of Terms & Conditions for abusive usage.
