What is the Fair Usage Policy on Uncapped accounts?

What the FUP is FUP?

The Fair Usage Policy (FUP) is our super simple way of protecting the integrity of the Webafrica network.

As with all acceptable usage policies, if you use more than a certain, pre-determined “fair” amount of data (your FUP threshold) in a given timeframe, you stand to be restricted to slower speeds during peak times, in order to allow other users to access to the network fairly.

Each line speed has its own FUP threshold, and because we don’t all have the same data needs, we offer three distinct packages which have different thresholds on the same line speed.

Does FUP affect me?

If you are an Openserve customer on either an Uncapped or Uncapped Premium package, then the FUP thresholds will apply to you. 

If you are on an Uncapped Pro package then the FUP will not affect you. 

If we supply you through any of our other Fibre infrastructure providers then you are automatically in the Uncapped Pro category and will not be affected by a FUP threshold.

What is my FUP threshold?

Your FUP threshold is based on your usage within a 30 day rolling window.
