Openness and Interconnection Policy

 

Vast Networks Openness
and Interconnection Policy

VAST NETWORKS commits to conform to the policy as set forth in FCC 05-15.  It has no plan or policy to monitor the types of communication or exchanges over the Internet except those that cause other customers to suffer a loss of service level or is illegal under state or federal law. 

VAST NETWORKS agrees to post its terms and conditions on its customer website.  VAST NETWORKS reserves the right to specify different terms and conditions based on class of service (such as business or consumer).  All last-mile service is connected to the Internet at adequate speeds to maintain the advertised speed based on normal patterns of service.

VAST NETWORKS will allow and support private network interconnection as is necessary for the use of its customers.  VAST NETWORKS will also allow any device that does not cause harm to the network nor has deleterious effect on its customers.
Unique requests will be responded to in less than 30 days and will be allowed as long as technically feasible according to the existing capacity and capabilities of the network.


VAST NETWORKS intends to impose no other conditions including volume restrictions except as necessary for the provision of service to its customers.  The following paragraph contains conditions that would be imposed on consumers as an example.
