Fair Usage Policy (FUP)
Pocwifi negotiates discounted wireless data rates with carriers worldwide and passes those savings on to you. While pocwifi does not
regulate your data usage (you pay a flat rate regardless of usage), our renters are subject to each carrier’s Fair Usage Policy.
Fair Usage Policies are implemented by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in order to apply a bandwidth cap to a user when a channel
shared by many users becomes overloaded or may already be overloaded. These caps vary by carrier and the terms and implementation
of the policies are under the ISP’s control. We recommend avoiding certain things that commonly use large amounts of data: streaming
video websites and services, cloud based backup or online storage applications, and applications that send or receive data automatically
including backup and update services.
Pocwifi cannot always override any application of a Fair Usage Policy. If you exceed an ISP’s Fair Usage Policies they may throttle your
usage by slowing down your data speed for a period of time. This excessive data usage will not result in any additional costs for your
