We have designed this Fair Usage Policy
(FUP) effective from 1st April 2013, as part of our effort to provide the
reliable and high-quality service to our customers. We intend to protect
privacy and security of our customers and encourage responsible use of
network resources. This Policy supplements (but does not supersede) our
Terms & Conditions for Internet subscription and applies to all Internet
customers with unlimited data plans.
Why Fair Usage Policy?
We intend to provide the best possible Internet experience to all our
customers. For this, we rely on customers being fair in the way they use the
Internet. Generally, this is the case too. However, some small numbers of
heavy or excessive users on unlimited data plans take up all the bandwidth,
slowing down the network and connection that is shared for everyone
This "Fair Usage Policy" is here to give us an option that if your usage is
excessive over a period of time to the point it is impacting on other users
experience, then we reserve the right to ask you to reduce your broadband
For example, if customer uses file-sharing software to upload and download
large-sized a file, this activity uses a lot of network resources and
affects the speed of network and Internet of other users. To ensure that
majority of our customers do not suffer, we monitor the usage by looking at
a number of factors including the amount of excessive usage over a period of
time and the bandwidth used.
How will this policy affect me?
Under the policy, we normally define internal fair usage levels for
unlimited data transfer plans. The usage levels set are very much adequate
and as such, most customers will not be affected. Our system continuously
monitors the data usage of each user periodically.
If the system determines
your usage to be excessive and unfair it will throttle your Internet speed
until the subscriptions expires and send you the notification via E-mail or
SMS. If not heeded to our requests, such accounts shall be disabled
temporarily. If continued further, then, in addition to any remedy that it
may have at law, we shall terminate contract to use the services and charge
user any applicable cancellation fee and outstanding dues.
Note: Dreamlink reserves the right to change this FUP in
or in whole as
and when required. The customer is solely responsible for any consequences
that result due to the violation of this FUP.
