What do the bandwidth column indicate, and why does it vary in format from one location to the next?

Because of the different network configurations and market localities, bandwidth is listed under one of three formats:

  • Metered traffic + port speed (ex: 10TB @ 100Mbps)
    • This means that you may use up to 10TB of traffic per billing month, to a speed of up to 100Mbps. 
  • Unmetered traffic + port speed (ex: Unltd @ 1Gbps)
    • This means that your downloads and uploads are not counted, and that you may use a speed of up to 1Gbps.
  • Bandwidth speed / port speed (ex: 10Mbps/100Mbps)
    • This means that while your downloads and uploads are not counted, you are only allowed to use 10Mbps for 95% percent of the billing month,
      and are allowed to burst beyond 10Mbps for 5% of the billing month, or approximately 36 hours in total.
