They will not be required to access the attic, crawl under the premises or to route the cable through walls. In a typical installation environment, the cable will be routed along the outside of the house in a neat and clean fashion and go through one exterior wall to connect to the computer. In some cases, the DIGITALPATH technician may deem it best to route the cable through an attic or under the premises, however they are not required to do so and an additional fee may apply for extraordinary installations. DIGITALPATH agrees to inform the customer of any additional fees prior of any work being started. During the installation process, damage may occur to the premises, including but not limited to, breaking of roof tiles. The technician will attempt to repair any damage at that time, including replacing of broken tiles, provided that the customer has spare tiles available. In the event that the damage cannot be repaired immediately, arrangements will be made for repairs to be completed as soon as possible.

DIGITALPATH shall not be liable for any repairs made or billed to DIGITALPATH without DIGITALPATH’s written consent.

*Data Allowances
       
Data allowances for all new customers became effective as of 7/20/2015. Customers who signed up for service between 7/20/15 and 9/9/2015 have data allowances as follows:  3 Mbps plan = 75 GB, 6 Mbps plan = 150 GB, 10 Mbps plan = 250 GB, 15 Mbps plan = 300 GB, 20 Mbps plan = 350 GB per billing cycle.  Customers who signed up for service after 9/9/2015 and rural customers who are out of contract are as follows:  3 Mbps = 75 GB, 6 Mbps = 100 GB, 6 Mbps Plus = 150 GB, 6 Mbps Premier = 200 GB, 6 Mbps Premium = 250 GB, 10 Mbps = 200 GB, 10 Mbps Plus = 250 GB. When a customer exceeds their data allowance in a billing cycle, they will be given the option to upgrade to a plan to support their actual data usage or see their speeds reduced to 0.5 Mbps for the remainder of the billing cycle. All “Pro” plan customers exceeding their data allowance will only have their speeds reduced to 0.5Mbps during peak hours for the remainder of the billing cycle. At the beginning of every billing cycle customers will have their full data allowance available at their regular speed. Data allowances are subject to change in order to support DigitalPath network capacity. Customers consistently exceeding data allowances on the highest plans may be asked to upgrade to a business premium plan or have their account terminated as determined by DigitalPath in its’ sole discretion.

* Traffic Prioritization

Customer traffic routing priority levels are based on data plan download speed and used only when network resources are near or at 100% capacity. Priority levels are as follows, lowest priority to highest priority: Priority 0 = deprioritized due to excess data usage. Priority 1 = 3 Mbps, Priority 2 = 6 Mbps, Priority 3 = 10+ Mbps, Priority 4 = Rural, Metro & Business “Pro” plans.
Routing Priority levels work as follows:  Priority 4 customers experience the least delay, their data packets are sent out in the order they are received. Priority 3 customer’s packets may be delayed up to 1 transmission cycle if a higher priority customer has packets in the queue.  Priority 2 customer packets may be delayed up to 2 transmission cycles if a higher priority customer has packets in the queue.  Priority 1 customer’s packets may be delayed up to 3 transmission cycles if a higher priority user has packets in the queue. Priority 0 customer data packets may be delayed up to 4 transmission cycles if a higher priority user has packets in the queue.  
Residential customers not on “Pro” plans exceeding their data allowance in a billing cycle will have their priority level set to 0 for the remainder of their billing cycle regardless of their data plans download speed. Residential Rural, Metro and Business “Pro” plan customers who exceed their data allowance in a billing cycle will have their priority level set to 2 for the remainder of their billing cycle.  

* Heavy User Policy

Customers on plans that do not begin with “2000” or have “GB” in their plan name are subject to a heavy user policy that became effective on 2/1/15 or when their current contract expired for users who signed up prior to 12/31/14. A “heavy user” is defined as a customer whose total combined upload and download usage exceeds 300 GB within the last 30 days, or a customer’s upload usage exceeds 30 GB within the last 30 days. This policy prioritizes the usage of a “heavy user” behind the usage of other customers that have not exceeded the above thresholds. A ‘heavy user” will be de-prioritized only when the network they are connected to reaches 100% of its available resources. Once a heavy user’s consumption drops below the above thresholds, they will be returned to their normal priority level. This policy greatly improves network performance during peak times and is necessary to prevent a few users from negatively impacting the services of many. “Heavy users” may be terminated or required to upgrade their services as determined by DigitalPath in its’ sole discretion.

 Monitoring

DigitalPath accepts that the use of email is a valuable business tool. However, misuse of this facility can have a negative impact upon the reputation of the email servers and the reputation of the business.

 Sanctions

Where it is believed that a customer has failed to comply with this policy, they will face the company’s disciplinary procedure. If the customer is found to have breached the policy, they will face a disciplinary penalty ranging from a written warning to suspension of the customer’s email account.

7.0 Policy to Terminate Use of Services for Copyright Infringement

Pursuant to 17 U.S.C.§ 512 as amended by Title II of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, DIGITALPATH will terminate the account of any subscriber who uses his or her account privileges to unlawfully transmit copyrighted material without a license, valid defense or fair use privilege to do so. After proper notification by the copyright holder or its agent to DIGITALPATH and later confirmation through court order or an admission by the subscriber that an account has been an instrument of unlawful infringement, DIGITALPATH will terminate the infringing subscriber’s account. DIGITALPATH may also in its sole discretion decide to terminate a subscriber’s account privileges prior to that time if it has good faith belief that infringement has occurred. In addition, pursuant to 17 U.S.C.§ 512(c), DIGITALPATH has implemented procedures for receiving written notification of claimed infringements and for processing such claims in accordance with the Act. DIGITALPATH respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our subscribers to do the same.
