Network Management Practices/Congestion Management: Country Mile Wireless Customer broadband connection speeds are limited to the maximum speed advertised for the speed package they are subscribed to. Country Mile Wireless Customers are not limited to a total maximum transfer limit, commonly referred to as a "Data Cap". Country Mile Wireless monitors network traffic to ensure capacity is sufficient to maintain an efficient network load, to perform diagnostics and to otherwise manage and enhance our network. Country Mile Wireless may give priority on an unpaid basis to interactive or critical classes of traffic such as VoIP, traffic essential to the efficient operation the Country Mile Wireless network, and traffic related to the accounts of commercial Customers or Customers with dedicated connections. Country Mile Wireless may limit peer-to-peer applications to the extent Country Mile Wireless determines, in Country Mile Wireless' sole and reasonable discretion, it is appropriate to maintain an efficient network load. Other factors that may affect a Customer's experience include multiple Customer devices simultaneously downloading high-bandwidth applications and services.
Country Mile Wireless' congestion management practices are in place to ensure that all Customers experience high quality service. If Country Mile Wireless determines, in its sole and reasonable discretion, that the manner in which a Customer is using the Service negatively impacts other Customers or the Country Mile Wireless, Country Mile Wireless reserves the right to apply additional congestion management techniques. As video streaming and other high bandwidth applications change over time, Country Mile Wireless may adjust and/or replace this bandwidth management technique to provide an improved end user experience for the customer base as a whole.
Country Mile Wireless' service is provided on a "best efforts" basis. Certain circumstances may affect the speed and quality of Service, including but not limited to foliage, line-of-sight obstructions, radio frequency interference, the distance between a Customer and the transmission point, and the connection of multiple devices to the Country Mile Wireless network.
Performance: Country Mile Wireless Customers with a well performing connection can reasonably expect to get their full subscribed connection speed most of the time. Commercial speed test websites can be a useful tool, but only serve to show the amount of bandwidth currently available, and does not account for bandwidth already in use by other devices on a Customer's network. Common examples of devices unknowingly using bandwidth include Windows or other operating system update, games systems which appear to be turned off, or cloud backup services, just to name a few. Customers may contact Country Mile Wireless Technical support to find out how much traffic is currently flowing through their connection. Customers at the very edge of our serviceable area or with a less than ideal signal may choose to accept service as deliverable, and may not realize their full subscribed speed. When congestion is identified every effort is made to remedy the problem as quickly as reasonably possible. While proactive upgrades are underway constantly, some remedies require hardware replacement, construction, or significant network changes, and will therefore take longer to implement.
Latency: Latency on the Country Mile Wireless network averages between 5ms and 50ms depending upon a number of factors including but not limited to; distance between customer and the access point or distance between the access point and nearest fiber optic connection. Latency to sites beyond the Country Mile Wireless network may be higher but are outside of Country Mile Wireless control.
