Arrow wireless bandwidth management policys

Current as of this posting june 24 2011.

Note 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.

The Fair Access Policy on this service 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, news groups, and online data storage) to a peak transfer speed of 300kbps download and 100kbps upload. During non-peak hours (between 1am and 8am local time) this policy is not active.

Outside of the Fair Access Policy, the speed you experience on your service is influenced by the design of the equipment. The equipment on your service is designed so that the speed you experience varies on a "per transaction" basis. Each time you begin a new "usage transaction", such as clicking a link on the web, sending an e-mail, or uploading a file, the initial speed you experience will be the "burst" speed associated with your particular package.

You will continue to experience this burst speed until you reach the "burst limit" for your package. If the transaction isn't finished when you reach the burst limit, the transaction will be completed at the "Sustained" speed for your package. (Click here for an example).

Each new usage transaction begins with the burst rate.

During normal web browsing, you will likely find that your transactions are at the burst rate. With larger file downloads/uploads, your transactions will be at a mix of the burst and sustained rates.

The table below illustrates the burst speed, burst limits, and sustained speed on each package.
Know what? I don't feel like splitting these numbers to make them readable. And then someone has mixed speed number types(kilobits and kilobytes) to make something or another. """"""Pic attached"""""

Please note that if you are on an "Essential", "Advantage", or "Performance" package, there is a monthly usage allowance on your service. This monthly usage allowance varies by package (see below). Your usage is the amount of data sent and received to and from the Internet through your Xplornet modem. When you exceed the usage allowance in a given billing month, you incur charges for that additional usage. For billing purposes usage is rounded to the nearest megabyte.


Service Packages
Essential | Advantage | Performance
Monthly Usage Allowance
10 GB | 20 GB | 30 GB



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 there are three parts to our traffic management policy.

24 Hour Usage Allowance

On your package there is a 24-hour usage allowance of 4 gigabytes (GB). When our network detects that you have used more than 4GB in the prior 24-hour period, your service will go into "Recovery Mode". While in Recovery Mode, your speed will be reduced to a maximum of 50% of your package speed. Your prior 24 hours usage will be re-evaluated in 12 hours. Once that usage is below the daily allowance, Recovery Mode will end and your speed will no longer be restricted.

Peak Hours Policy

On your package there is also a policy that operates only during peak hours (between 8am and 1am local time). During this time, our network subjects traffic related to applications that are considered non time-sensitive (such as peer-to-peer file sharing, news groups, and online data storage) to a peak transfer speed of 300 kbps download and 100 kbps upload. During non-peak hours (between 1am and 8am local time) this policy is not active.

Dynamic Congestion Management Policy

On your service there is a dynamic congestion management policy which operates anytime network congestion is detected. This dynamic policy responds to congestion in a part of the network by identifying the top 10% of 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.

On your service there is a monthly usage allowance. This monthly usage allowance varies by package (see below). Your usage is the amount of data sent and received to and from the Internet through your Xplornet modem. When you exceed the usage allowance in a given billing month, you incur charges for that additional usage. For billing purposes usage is rounded to the nearest megabyte.
Service Packages
Essential | Lite / Advantage | Standard / Performance | Max
Monthly Usage Allowance
10 GB | 20 GB | 30 GB | 40 GB



On our Lite, Standard, and Max packages, we have a "free download period", from 2am to 7am local time daily, during which usage is not counted toward your monthly total.

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 we are introducing two traffic management measures on May 1st 2011.


Peak Hours Policy

On your service there is also a policy that operates only during peak hours (between 8am and 1am local time). During this time, our network subjects traffic related to applications that are considered non time-sensitive (such as peer-to-peer file sharing, news groups, and online data storage) to a peak transfer speed of 300 kbps download and 100 kbps upload. During non-peak hours (between 1am and 8am local time) this policy is not active.

Dynamic Congestion Management Policy

On your service there is a dynamic congestion management policy which operates anytime network congestion is detected. This dynamic policy responds to congestion in a part of the network by identifying the top 10% of 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.

This traffic management policy will not cause transfer speed to fall below 100 kbps.

For the unfortunate Canopy users, let's translate:

Quote:
Service Package Burst Speed | Burst Limit | Sustained Speed
Zip Down Up to 300 kbps | 36 KB | Up to 100 Kbps
300 kbps is 37.5 KB/s. So if you load a web page, you will get your rated speed for less than one second and then you'll be throttled back to about twice the rate of a dial-up modem. Or I should say, "up to" twice the rate of a dial-up modem.

So yes, Zip service is basically dialup without the phone.
