Open Internet Principles of AirFiber WISP
The Federal Communications Commission issued rules to preserve the Internet as an open platform. These rules went into effect on November 23, 2011 and can be found at this link: click here
All Internet service providers are required to post information regarding various issues so that consumers, both residential and business, can make informed choices about choosing an Internet service provider. This document contains information regarding our services and in compliance with the FCC’s rules. The policies contained herein serve as a supplement to the existing terms of service.
The FCC’s rules focus on three primary issues:
• Transparency. Fixed and mobile broadband providers must disclose the network management practices, performance characteristics, and terms and conditions of their broadband services;
• No blocking. Fixed broadband providers may not block lawful content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices; mobile broadband providers may not block lawful Web sites, or block applications that compete with their voice or video telephony services; and
• No unreasonable discrimination. Fixed broadband providers may not unreasonably discriminate in transmitting lawful network traffic.
• Reasonable network management. ISPs may engage in reasonable network management to maintain a high quality of service for broadband Internet access.
ISPs must disclose their network practices, specifically in the four general areas listed below. ISPs may not block lawful content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices, subject to reasonable network management. An ISP may not block consumers from accessing lawful Web sites, subject to reasonable network management; nor shall the ISP block applications that compete with the provider’s voice or video telephony services, subject to reasonable network management. ISPs may not unreasonably discriminate in transmitting lawful network traffic over a consumer’s broadband Internet access service, although, reasonable network management shall not constitute unreasonable discrimination. The FCC’s rules state that a network management practice is reasonable if it is appropriate and tailored to achieving a legitimate network management purpose, taking into account the particular network architecture and technology of the broadband Internet access service.
AirFiber WISP manages its network with one goal: to deliver the best possible broadband Internet experience to all of its customers.
Bandwidth management is not based on application, content or protocol. The technique is “protocol-agnostic,” which means that the system does not manage congestion based on the applications being used by customers. It is also content neutral, so it does not depend on the type of content that is generating traffic congestion. Said another way, customer traffic is congestion-managed not based on the applications or content being used, but based on current bandwidth product the customer purchases.
Device Attachment Rules
Any device connected to the AirFiber WISP network must conform to publicly available industry standards and be non-harmful to the AirFIber WISP network. Residential subscribers may not run any type of server, including, but not limited to, DNS servers, mail servers, ftp servers, game servers or P2P servers.
AirFIber WISP offers its customers unrestricted access to all of the lawful content, services, and applications available on the Internet. AirFIber WISP uses industry standard tools and best practices and policies to protect our customers from spam, phishing, and other unwanted or harmful on-line content and activities. In the instances where these tools and policies identify on-line content as harmful or unwanted, the content may be prevent from reaching customers, or customers may be permitted to identify or inspect content to determine if it is harmful or unwanted.
ISPs must disclose the following network performance characteristics:
The advertised speed of AirFiber WISP’s Internet Service is the maximum speed achievable with the technology utilized by AirFiber WISP. While the maximum advertised speed is attainable for end users, several factors may affect the actual speed of AirFiber WISP’s Internet service offerings, including, but not limited to: the end user’s computer, modem or router, activity during peak usage periods, and other Internet traffic. The service is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to warranties of title, non-infringement, implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose or any warranties arising from course of dealing or usage of trade, no advice or information given by AirFiber WISP, its affiliates, its licensers, its contractors or their respective employees shall create a warranty.
