As part of our continuing effort to provide the best experience to all of our customers, Racksready has created this Fair Use Policy for Internet Bandwidth. This Fair Use Policy states important requirements regarding your use of the Internet Bandwidth Usage in your Servers. Racksready Server Plans do not have set limits on bandwidth. Instead, we have a fair use policy which goes as follows. Internet Bandwidth use is unlimited as long as, it is used as an integral part of your server, you are not intentionally abusing the service by using excessive bandwidth, you are not violating our terms and conditions, and you are not impeding our capability to provide other users with unlimited Bandwidth. In other words, if you are adding content (images, files, text etc.) to your site and using the service in the way it is intended to be used, then we will not limit the amount of bandwidth your server is consuming. Our intention is that, as long as both parties are being fair, you should not have to worry about bandwidth limits. We'll take care of these sorts of issues so you can concentrate on growing your business. If, however, you are attempting to take advantage of the service by distributing large files or streaming excessive video or hosting torrents or something similar or hacking/spamming, then we will request that you cease doing so or shut down your server until issue is solved. Also please note that by unlimited Bandwidth, you are sharing 1000 mbps bandwidth with other 48 servers in each CISCO Switch. If you need 100 mbps dedicated bandwidth, it will cost $60 extra rent per month. If you have upgraded your LAN port speed from 100 mbps to 1000 mbps same rules again applies, you are sharing 1000 mbps bandwidth with other 48 servers. If you need 100 mbps dedicated bandwidth, it will cost $60 extra rent per month.
