Network Management Practices

The Company utilizes reasonable practices to ensure the security, integrity and performance of its Internet network. These practices include but are not limited to:

  1. Congestion Management – [GRTI measures and monitors network performance in order to ensure a consistent and high quality Internet access service is being provided to its customers. In the event GRTI identifies congestion in any part of its network, GRTI will take the steps necessary to resolve such an issue. These steps include, but are not necessarily limited to, identifying unreasonably high individual customer usage and temporarily limiting available bandwidth to those customers, identifying specific types of high usage traffic and limiting available bandwidth available to those specific types of activity, and other such practices as to ensure sufficient bandwidth is available to all of GRTI’s customers.
  2. GRTI at this time does not limit access or bandwidth to any specific Internet applications. However, GRTI reserves the right to reasonably manage its network and may, in the future, consider such a practice. The implementation of any such application-specific limitation policy will be clearly noted in an update to this Disclosure Statement.
  3. GRTI does not limit the number of attachment devices to the service except when devices are deemed unlawful. GRTI provides one DSL modem per DSL line when service is provisioned over copper wiring.
