Throttled Throughput (Fair Access Policy – FAP) | Service Plan Upgrades


MaxIR – Maximum Information Rate, the maximum speed at which data can be received or transmitted.
CIR – Committed Information Rate, the speed at which we guarantee data can be received or transmitted. We guarantee you will receive 110% of your CIR at least 90% of the time, if not more.
Throughput Allowance – This is the total amount of data that can be transferred up and/or down in a given billing cycle (30 days). Please make sure to review our Fair Access Policy (FAP). There are two options for you to choose from regarding your Throughput Allowance:
Option 1 – If you may need additional throughput some months you may purchase an “unlimited” plan. With this option, you will be billed according to your service plan for any throughput in excess of the plan allowance.
Option 2 – If you prefer flat rate billing, you may choose a “limited” plan. If you exceed your plan’s throughput allowance, your connection speeds may be slowed down until your usage is back in profile with the plan.
Note – Both Platinum VI & Gold VI can be configured as Option 1 or Option 2
Note – Platinum VI Service Plans will be optimized for VoIP (1 slot every frame while idle)
Note – Gold VI Service Plans will receive 1 slot every 4th frame while idle.
IP Addressing – All plans include 1 publicly routable static IP address. Blocks of 5 or 13 are available. Block of 5 is $30.00. Block of 13 is $60.00. Up to 256 are available if needed at an additional charge. If you need more than 5 IP addresses, your request must be justified in writing to meet ARIN requirements.
G28 Evo Only – Evolution plans only.
