Some things to keep in mind...

We do not place monthly caps on the maximum amount of bandwidth available in our broadband plans.

The data transfer rates listed above are the maximum rates you will receive on each plan.  The actual data transfer rates you can expect will vary depending on a great many factors.  Internet access and DSL transport are "best effort" services.  Internet access involves transport of data outside our network.  We do not guarantee the performance of your service to any site.

Do not expect more from your service than it can provide.  Streaming content may occasionally work on a lower rate plan but may not work consistently.  Check with your content provider for the recommendations on data transfer rate plan requirements to use their service.

Purchasing a faster internet connection will not make an old slow PC or a PC with problems work faster.

A speed test is only a general indicator of your internet connection speed.  These tests include performance characteristics of connections to locations that are outside of our network that we do not control.  Speed tests to different networks will often yield widely different results.  Just because a speed test does not register the data transfer rate that you expect does not mean that our internet connection is bad, broken, or faulty.  We do not accept lower than expected speed test results as proof that your service if faulty.
