Fair Use Policy

Ultra ISP Broadband ‘Unlimited’ Plans


Fair Use Explained

Overview – Defining ‘Unlimited’

  1. Unlimited means that the amount of data you download, or upload is not limited, however, Unlimited does not imply infinite data.
  2. You will not be billed for any data usage, nor will a shaping or speed limiting policy be applied to your service when you reach a downloaded and uploaded data limit.
  3. Factors outside the control of Ultra ISP may have an effect of altering user experience and download speeds. For example, localised congestion of wholesale supplied backhaul may prevent our wholesale supplier providing the same speeds at all times of day.
  4. The maximum data transfer speed of your connection is dependent on physical infrastructure such as your premises distance from the telephone exchange and quality of communications cabling. The speed of your own connection may place a limit to the amount of data that you are able to download.
