Noting that "primetime" may cause slower speeds.

Our goal is to ensure that each Xplornet customer receives fair and consistent access to the Internet. A small percentage of customers are responsible for a disproportionate share of data usage on our network. To minimize the impact that heavier users might have on the experience of other Xplornet customers, we have implemented a Fair Access Policy. Our intent with this policy is to affect the fewest customers while helping maintain the best speeds for the majority of customers.

On your service the Fair Access Policy is based on an hourly bandwidth allowance. If you exceed your hourly download or upload allowance, your service will go into "Recovery Mode". While in Recovery Mode, your speed will be restricted to a maximum of 25% (download) or 50% (upload) of your normal maximum speed.

Recovery Mode will continue for sixty minutes. At the end of sixty minutes, the system will reevaluate your usage over the prior 60 minutes. If that usage is below the hourly allowance, Recovery Mode will end and your speed will no longer be restricted.




To encourage users to shift demanding usage to off-peak hours, we have a "Free Download Period". Any usage during this period, which runs from 2am to 7am local time daily, is not counted against your hourly allowance. Also, the speed restrictions associated with Recovery Mode are suspended during this period.

As well, there is an additional policy that affects all customers on your platform. This policy operates only during peak hours (between 8am and 1am local time). During this time, we subject traffic related to applications that are considered non time-sensitive (such as peer-to-peer file sharing, including BitTorrent-type applications, news groups, and online data storage (e.g. Rapidshare) to a peak transfer speed of 3% of the unrestricted maximum speed on your package. During non-peak hours (between 1am and 8am local time) this policy is not active.

In addition, on March 1st 2011 we will be introducing a dynamic congestion management policy . This dynamic policy will respond to congestion in a part of the network by identifying those users in that part of the network who are consuming the most bandwidth and reducing their speeds to approximately half their maximum speed for a period of 15 minutes. At the end of 15 minutes, if congestion in that part of the network continues to be an issue, the system will once again calculate which users have been consuming the most bandwidth in the prior 15 minutes, and implement the speed restriction on that newly-calculated set of users.

.....down.......up.....down per hour*...up per hour*
Kazam | 512 | 128 kbps | 24 MB | 2.4 MB
Basic | 1.0 Mbps | 128 kbps | | 55 MB | 5.5 MB
Kazoom | 1.0 Mbps | 256 kbps | 55 MB | 5.5 MB
Kabang | 1.5 Mbps | 300 kbps | 88 MB | 8.8 MB
Kaboom | 2.0 Mbps | 500 kbps | 110 MB | 11 MB
I added the * star is based on primetime slowdowns that have been reported that reduce actual download allowance per hour from stated maximum.

On your service the Fair Access Policy is based on a daily usage allowance. If you exceed your daily allowance, your service will go into "Recovery Mode". While in Recovery Mode, your speed will be restricted to a maximum of 15-100 kbps. Recovery Mode will continue for 24 hours. At the end of 24 hours, Recovery Mode will end, and you will begin a new 24 hour period with a fresh daily allowance.


To encourage users to shift demanding usage to off-peak hours, we have a "Free Download Period".
