5. Fair Usage Policy:
All of Our Services with unmetered/unlimited bandwidth are subject to this fair usage policy.
5.1 DATA USAGE
Unmetered Bandwidth does not mean infinite data usage.
1Gbps unmetered FUP = unmetered bandwidth on 1Gbps port for fair usage. Any streaming/cdn/high port uplink using applications are NOT allowed. If your monthly bandwidth cross 100TB or 300 mbps on 95 percentile method, we may limit port speed to 100mbps till reset of billing cycle unless you opt for paid upgrade (1Gbps True Unmetered 24`7 = +29 Euros/m extra)
In some cases, if we feel bandwidth usage is high, we can upgrade Bandwidth option from 1Gbps unmetered FUP (No Streaming) to 1Gbps True Unmetered 24x7 (streaming allowed). In such cases, client will have to pay the fees for upgrade for current month and will have to renew at new pricing.
Since all of our services operate under shared environment, therefore clients are expected to use a fair share amount of bandwidth and don't overload server resources.
We regularly monitor bandwidth usage pattern of clients and any abusive usage of bandwidth will result in immediate suspension of services. If we classify your usage as abuse, your services may be immediately suspended and you may be denied to provide any more services in the future.
No Refunds will be applicable in such cases of Breach of FUP.
We strictly do NOT allow Video/Audio streaming or any such high bandwidth usage applications with 1Gbps unmetered FUP (No Streaming). You have to buy server with 1Gbps True Unmetered 24x7 (streaming allowed) option for such high bandwidth usage applications.
5.2 PORT/UPLINK USAGE
All VPS host nodes have a dedicated uplink shared among multiple clients generally between 10-12. Therefore, you can NOT expect all the speeds of uplink/port for yourself all the time.
